Bangladesh is ranked 7th among 10 countries of the world which are most affected by climate change and disasters. The country is experiencing extreme weather events like cyclones, floods, droughts and rise in salinity of water, which particularly affect the poor and vulnerable, especially women.
Local Government Initiative on Climate Change (LoGIC) is a multi-donor collaborative initiative of the Government of Bangladesh, European Union, Swedish International Development Agency, UN Capital Development Fund and United Nations Development Program.
LoGIC aims to enhance capacities of vulnerable communities, local government institutions and civil society organizations for planning and financing climate change adaptation solutions in selected climate vulnerable areas.
LoGIC entails building capacity, awareness and empowerment of the vulnerable people, particularly women, to generate plans and provide them with direct support to meet their adaptation needs by providing them with a Climate Resilient Fund.
LoGIC provides Performance Based Climate Resilient grants to local government institutions on community-based adaptation work and promotes a local climate financing mechanism for delivering at scale.
Through advocacy and mainstreaming the good practices, LoGIC aims to reinforce ensure scalability and sustainability, thereby attaining the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
“The cyclone had destroyed our home. We lost everything-our poultry and fish farm. LoGIC project has enabled me to build a climate resilient fish farm. Initially we started with 3-4 types of climate adaptive fish and within 8 months we sold all of it at the local market at a profitable rate” -Rohima Begum (45), Mongla, Bagerhat
“We faced problems with collecting and purifying the polluted pond water as we could not afford to buy purifying chemicals. But we no longer spend hours each day carrying and fetching water for our families,” -Hanufa Aktar Salma, Manikkhali, Barguna

How WE WORK

The project envisages a twofold sustainability of efforts beyond its stipulated life.

Community Risks Assessment

CRA is a participatory process for assessing hazards, vulnerabilities, risks, ability to cope, preparing coping strategies and finally preparing a risk reduction options implementation plan by the local community.

Community Resilient Fund

CRF is to provide small-scale, household adaptation grants to vulnerable households in high climate risk wards to enable the households to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction activities that will result in immediate benefits for the households’ livelihoods.

Performance Based Climate Resilient Grants

PBCRG is a financing mechanism for local government action on climate change adaptation that was developed within the framework of UNCDF’s global Local Climate Adaptive Living (LoCAL) project.
