Bangladesh is vulnerable to both disasters and climate change and ranked the seventh extreme disaster risk-prone country in the world as per the report from the Global Climate Risk Index 2021. 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.
