Charter on Community Resilience to Climate Change in Bay of Bengal 2015

11 March 2016

The vulnerability of communities living along the Bay of Bengal has grown exponentially in recent years. The ‘Charter on Community Resilience to Climate Change in Bay of Bengal 2015’ focuses on the ways of empowering communities to cope with climate change threats. 

The development of the charter was facilitated by Concern among others. It was drafted following a series of consultations held during the Third Sub-Regional Workshop on Community Resilience to Climate Change in Bay of Bengal, held at Kolkata, India in March 2015.

Delegates at the workshop reiterated the three high priority areas for Bay of Bengal communities which are now outlined in the charter: climate change adaptation, building resilience and disaster risk reduction.
