three days of plenary sessions and interactive sessions at the conference in Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital city.
Field trips 19 - 21 April
Participants will be divided into groups and taken to different areas to see how communities have adapted to climate-related problems such as flooding, droughts or saline water intrusion. Some of these field sites will be part of the Action Research on Community Adaptation in Bangladesh (ARCAB) programme.
