Climate change poses risks for human and natural systems. Furthermore, a changing climate leads to changes in the frequency, intensity, duration, and timing of extreme weather and climate events, with the potential of generating disasters. The severity of impacts of climate related events also depends strongly on the level of vulnerability of communities exposed to such events. Nonetheless, impacts and risks related to climate change can be reduced and managed through adaptation and mitigation.
CIFAL Scotland offers training to community leaders from Bangladesh to learn about Climate Change Adaptation techniques and effectively implement them in their communities.
