Climate Change and Disaster Resilience Program

Islam promotes a holistic approach to climate change and disaster resilience. It assumes a link and interdependency between all natural elements – it teaches that if humanity abuses or exhausts one element, the natural world as a whole will suffer direct consequences. With this in mind, and informed by our experience and learning, Islamic Relief in Bangladesh has adopted an integrated approach to address disaster and climate risks. In partnership with government, academic institutions, civil society, communities and the private sector, we are working to support a vibrant, thriving and resilient Bangladesh.

Barley Production in a Changing Climate: Insights of the Farmer’s Field Laboratory

Climate change is a burning issue within the last century and poises a continuous threat to lives, livelihoods and the earth’s capacity to produce food. These effects are expected to get worse as climate change worsens. Numerous threats of extreme temperature, cyclone and storm surge,inundation, salinity intrusion and erratic rainfall with increasing intensity and frequency are originated from climactic variations.Estimates can vary, but for every 1.8°F increase in global average surface temperature, it’s supposed to decline about a 10% in yields of the world’s major grain crops, like-rice,barley, wheat etc. Reduction in agricultural production induces a grave hunger threat and over 35% of Bangladesh is suffering from malnourishment.

Portraits of Resilience: Confronting Climate Change in Bangladesh

Islamic Relief Bangladesh is working to systematically enhance the resilience of the most climate-vulnerable households and communities in Bangladesh through strengthening their adaptive capacity and reducing their risk exposure by supporting households, communities, local government and national institutions to anticipate, plan for and adapt to and recover from climate variability and shocks. We work to support the strengthening, linking and integration of local to national sub-systems through bottom-up planning designed to inform national level development planning and climate finance decisions if favour of the most climate-vulnerable communities and persons in Bangladesh.
