unit of Environment & Climate Change
The Environment unit works to promote environmental sustainability as environmental development is the key to achieving overall sustainable development. The unit works assessments of environmental conditions and trends as well as building the capacity of society and partnerships & mind-sets within public and private sectors to produce the necessary information and instruments for high-quality environmental decision to achieve sustainable development. Global climate changes are posing a major challenge to Bangladesh, due to accelerated rise in sea level, storm impacts, loss of coastal wetlands and biodiversity. FSDR tries to bring meaningful transformation in mindset of community people, “we should face our problem.” We work in collection of mean sea level rise data for a long period, strengthening of the network for prediction, tackling & monitoring system for tropical cyclones, enhancing awareness on the vulnerability to sea level rise & other climate changes and encouraging a participatory involvement of the local population in the coastal development and resource management activities.
