Bangladesh, Climate change

Our learning highlights the disconnects of policy and climate finance that exists in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, and Climate sectors of Bangladesh. We believe that water and climate change are complementary, and measures to tackle the changes associated with it must have a working synergy in Bangladesh.


To highlight the various disconnects that exist WaterAid and ICCCAD focused on providing insights on how to:

  • Create and implement climate-resilient WASH policies
  • Ensure inclusive management of water resources and infrastructures
  • Properly allocate and use funds for sustainable WASH services
