Help UNICEF build resilience of communities against disasters in Bangladesh

I have been lucky enough to visit Bangladesh many times in sourcing trips.

Worst flooding to hit South Asia in living memory, are an outcome of climate change.

- 84% of the  Sylhet district are now submerged,

- Damaged 93k homes 

- Over 200 people died

- 7.2 million need aid world’s most climate-vulnerable where the poor are disproportionately impacted 

Even if average global temperatures increase modestly – by 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) over the average for pre-industrial times – flooding along the Brahmaputra river basin in northeastern India and Bangladesh is projected to increase by 24 percent.
