Better farming practices for resilient livelihoods in saline and flood-prone Bangladesh

Better farming practices for resilient livelihoods in saline and flood-prone Bangladesh

According to the Climate Change Vulnerability Index 2015, Bangladesh is the first and most at risk country to the impacts of climate change. Aggravating climate conditions threaten crop production and now barely allow for small farmers living in the districts along the coast to live decently from their agricultural activities, which represent the main livelihoods in the area. Solidarités International supported farmers in Satkhira District between 2013 and 2016 by launching resilient farming activities and improving livelihood resilience: access to improved seeds, improved agricultural practices and development of integrated farming.

This case study takes stock of Solidarités International's project on resilient farming practice in Satkhira district, Bangladesh, and provides lessons learned and recommandations that can be useful to other NGOs working in similar saline and flood-prone contexts.
