In Satkhira, Bangladesh, local grassroots organisations are raising awareness and extending essential services to communities to tackle the compounding effects of COVID-19 and cyclone Amphan. Sohanur Rahman reports
Bangladesh has always been prone to natural hazards such as cyclones and floods. Impacts of climate change have only increased the frequency and intensity of these extreme events, accompanied by rising sea levels. Attribution science, such as that conducted by Raising Risk Awareness, can be used to inform decisions about recovery and climate resilience after an extreme weather event, and in planning for the future.
