The vision of the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) is to eradicate poverty and achieve economic and social well-being for all people through implementing a pro-poor climate change strategy.

To help foster resilience to drought and other stresses, this project highlighted strategies that ensured food was available during times of hardship, whether due to low agricultural output as a result of drought, high market prices, etc.

The community development fund is utilized for projects that benefit large sections of the community, and for activities specifically aimed at improving the quality of life of the poorest individuals.

The project worked in four districts of the east Indian State of Orissa: Bargarh, Balangir, Kalahandi and Nuapada which are among the poorest in India. The region faces erratic rainfall and long dry spells.

The watershed plus approach provides a broad framework for inclusive development. This approach uses micro-watersheds as the basic developmental unit and focuses on building and working with people.

Rainwater can be harvested using cost-effective ponds or roof-top systems. In the latter, the cost of the collection tank is the main expense.

The 'climate-witness' approach is a methodology which aims at documenting the perception of the community at various stakeholder levels to the adverse effects of climate change.

Terrain assessment can support planning tools to incorporate elements of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and ensure land use that supports the aspirations of climate resilient development.
