Climate change is a reality now and accelerating rapidly. It is happening and has already started to influence our life. Being not responsible at all, Bangladesh is the frontline victims of climate change in the globe. Flood, tropical cyclones, droughts, storm surges are most likely to become frequent and severe in coming years and will make it more difficult to achieve Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). So, action is needed to go for future activities to cope with climate change impact as well as make our community more resilient to climate changes. Knowledge on climate change risks could help taking adaptation measures into national policy and planning processes. Adaptation to climate change in water sector can reduce many of the adverse impacts of climate change and enhance beneficial impacts. Many adaptation strategies designed appropriately in advance, would provide long-term benefits. Activities required for enhancement of adaptive capacity are essentially equivalent to those promoting sustainable development.

To address adaptation to climate change, Center for Climate Change and Sustainability Research is going to conduct a training on "Community Based Adaptation to Climate Change for Bangladesh" for the people who are concerned about the threats and challenges induced by Climate Change.
