Adapting social safety-net programs to climate change shocks: issues and options for Bangladesh

Research Grant Reports

Climate change poses significant risks for Bangladesh. Higher temperatures, more variable rainfall, more frequent cyclones, and rising sea levels are having serious and increasing impacts on the livelihoods of the rural poor. The study aimed to quantify the number of rural poor whose livelihoods are threatened by climate change; describe the type of climate risks being faced; identify and analyze examples of coordination and integration of disaster management, social safety nets and climate change adaptation and rural development.  Four SSN programmes have been examined and ways to make them more climate-relevant have been proposed.  VGD, RERMP and FFW programmes are SSN-DRM oriented, and the CLP is DRM-CCA oriented and the implications for safety-nets and for coordination among ministries have been discussed.
