Description of Project

The Third National Communication will revise national circumstances, based on current realities. It will carry out review of the updated statistical information as available on the present status of the country including geographical characteristics, geological, physiographic, climate, forests, land use, socio-economic, demographic and other environmental characteristics in the context of climate change response, national policies and developing strategies of the country.
In addition to the main scope, improvement over the Second National Communication (SNC) would be the treatment of the socio-economic issue i.e. poverty would be related to climate change and climatic variability to make it become relevant in the present context and understanding how the different social roles and economic status of men and women affect, and are affected differently by climate change will improve actions taken to adapt to mitigate climate change. For this reason the TNC will consider this gender dimension in order to better understand how the different roles of men and women in Bangladesh’ social and economic circumstances may affect the country’s ability to deal with mitigating and adapting to climate change.
