Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. 

 

The growing frequency and strength of storms and other natural disasters, along with rampant urbanization, hampers the country's pursuit of livability and their commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. ADB, through the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) and the Coastal Towns Environmental Infrastructure Project (CTEIP), is assisting the country by providing grant financing to Patuakhali and Bagerhat so as to collect social and infrastructure data and build capacity in disaster management through the use of geographic information system and information and communication technologies.
