In the wake of rapid increase in global warming, substantial changes to the climate have occurred worldwide. No country knows it better than Bangladesh where millions of people have experienced the suffering caused by floods and cyclones over the last few decades. The government of Bangladesh has considered climate change as a priority concern, and has taken steps for climate resilient activates.
In line with the government initiatives, HEED Bangladesh, a pioneer NGO in disaster management constructed a good number of cyclone shelters across the costal belt in the country. Apart from sheltering the costal people during the disaster period, these cyclone centers are usually used as primary education centers for children in the coastal areas where there are hardly any primary schools. Here, below is the list of the cyclone shelters with detailed information constructed by HEED Bangladesh. Achievement May 2008 to June 2015: Malaria Control Program is covering 148964 populations in 25,525 households. Achievements of the project from May 2008 to June 2015 are following:
