Addressing climate vulnerability with nature-based solutions in BangladeshBangladesh
Bangladesh, like many lower income countries, is exceptionally vulnerable to increased climate risks, exacerbated by environmental degradation and socio-economic challenges including the COVID-19 pandemic. Nature-based solutions could provide cost-effective options to address these challenges but policymakers lack evidence on their effectiveness. To address this, we produced a comprehensive synthesis of evidence on the effectiveness of NbS for addressing climate impacts in Bangladesh, and the outcomes for other sustainable development goals.
