Teesta Pilot Interventions

Kaunia, Teesta Basin, Rangpur, Bangladesh

Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS) is conducting action research to pilot Climate and Flood Resilience (CFR) housing options in the lower Teesta basin in northwestern Bangladesh. BCAS has adopted a participatory and multi-disciplinary sequential approach in piloting CFR housing. Upscaling this pilot that has brought together housing technology expertise and community knowledge and needs will bring relief from inundation and livelihood insecurity to the flood affected residents. The technologically-sound and socio-culturally appropriate CFR housing options also offer habitat security including access to basic amenities, water sanitation, storing grains even during floods and inundation.
