BEST PRACTICE IN:
Chars are small islands and hooks in river deltas. These are particularly affected by flooding. The current program envisages building flood-protected houses on the Chars of the Jamuna river, the main arm of the Brahmaputra in Bangladesh.
The work will be extended to constructing latrines and the expanding the supply of drinking water. Along with building and adaptation measures, the project also incorporates social aspects.
Protecting chars which are affected by frequent floods.
To elevate 100,000 houses by about 60 cm, the level of the large floods of 2004.
To build flood-protected houses on the Chars of the Jamuna river, the main arm of the Brahmaputra in Bangladesh
Constructing flood protected houses and elevating the existing houses are measures taken in anticipation to threat of floods due to sea level rise. Habitat protection makes the project fit into CCA concept.
