Appropriate Technology Park for Climate Change Adaptation and Environment Friendly Coping Strategy

This APFED project is aimed to collect and display various proven climate sensitive technologies in an integrated way to reduce vulnerabilities of the climate change impacts on rural poor. The project introduced, demonstrated and helped adopt the technologies that provide multimode benefits to the community and poor farmers in mitigating and interacting with the environmental challenges in a more proactive manner. The goal of the project was to demonstrate technologies through establishing a technology park, create enabling environment for easy access and develop knowledge and awareness regarding climate change and the coping strategies using appropriate technologies. The project was implemented in two different locations of Bangladesh - South West (Jessore) and North West (Dinajpur) regions of Bangladesh. The project integrated a number of key stakeholders for the achievement of the project mandates in a sustainable way. The Community people (women, men and youths), Local and Central Government Institutions, NGOs, different Networks and Forums, Private Sector Business Enterprises, University/College/Schools and Research Institutions were engaged to achieve the program goals and objectives. Each played specific roles in realizing the project mandates.
