How the fight against poverty can protect the climate
Bangladesh is one of the most affected countries from climate change. Floods have fatal consequences. Crops are lost. Due to climate change, hunger and illnesses increase. But the people are willing to take up this fight – for the future of their children. Their will and strength for a sustainable change contributes to combat climate change.
Victims of climate change become activists
Thousands of families in ten of the poorest districts in Bangladesh are determined to overcome hunger and poverty. NETZ supports their self-help initiatives.
Multiple benefits: They want to plant trees.
Poverty reduction and climate protection – two sides of the same coin
Every family can plant five trees in their direct surrounding. They choose fruit trees like Mango, Guava and Lemon as well as other like neem and horseradish. These trees are going to contribute to a better nutrition and an improved livelihood.
Safe and all-embracing
Local farmers support the tree planting and provide regular advise. The families take care of their seedlings. Therefore the small trees will survive, in contrast to many mass plantations, the critical initial growing period. As part of the project the families will be participate in trainings on the reasons and consequences of climate change as well as disaster preparedness and response.
