What we can do for climate change
In Bangladesh which is susceptible to climate change, because of sea level rise due to global warming, seawater has broken into underground water and salting of drinking water is in progress. Salt damage is also causing serious damage to crops, and make the life of those engaged in agriculture very difficult. In Children’s Forest Program (CFP), we are focusing on activities to teach the children the knowledge about climate change and countermeasures so that they would be able to live with peace of mind in the future.
We are carrying out tree planting activity while telling them the importance of protecting our communities from climate change for securing safe water and food. We are also providing practical guidance on the cultivation of crops resistant to salt damage and environment-friendly agriculture that does not use pesticides as well as teaching the method of self-sufficiency in safe food.
