The Gibika project, which focused on understanding how climatic changes influence people’s livelihood resilience in Bangladesh, was recently concluded. An overview of the project’s research findings is now available in the Gibikia Fact Sheet and Gibika End Report.
This research-to-action collaboration between the UNU Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), and Munich Re-Foundation (MRF) included an annual academy on resilience that brought together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to share knowledge and undertake joint visits to the field study sites in Bangladesh.
The research findings coming out of the 5-year project were shared during several high-level meetings as well as in interactions with local entities in Bangladesh, where they will be used to help to improve the living conditions of vulnerable people and promote a sustainable future for all.
The debates around how to develop solutions to protect extremely vulnerable people from the negative consequences of climate change have influenced the science and policy discourse globally, most notably through the publication of several high-level articles.
