Most development projects in the country address reducing vulnerability to disasters or poverty, and it is well-recorded how local people have their own well-established coping capacities. Tropical cyclones, tornadoes, floods, coastal and riverbank erosion, droughts, landslides are the major climate-induced hazards in Bangladesh.
