Bangladesh - Climate Resilient Participatory Afforestation and Reforestation Project (English)

The development objective of the Climate Resilient Participatory Afforestation and Reforestation Project for Bangladesh is to reduce forest degradation and increase forest coverage through participatory planning and monitoring and to contribute in building the long-term resilience of selected communities in coastal and hilly areas to climate change. The project has four components. The first component is afforestation and reforestation program. The objective of this component is to increase the afforested and reforested areas through participatory forestry and co-management approach in the degraded forestland, marginal, fallow and newly accreted land in coastal and hilly areas. In achieving the target of participatory afforestation and reforestation, the component will also support the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the existing field offices of the Bangladesh Forest Department (BFD). The second component is alternative livelihoods to support forest communities. The objective of this component is to improve and diversify non forest-based livelihood opportunities of poor forest dependent households in selected forest communities. This component will target 6,000 households comprising no less than 25,000 people in 200 forest communities in 9 project districts with a clear and sound selection method. The third component is capacity development for forest resource planning and management. The objective of the component is to improve the technical knowledge base on forest resource assessment, program monitoring and long-term planning for the sustainable development of the forest sector. The fourth component is project management. This component will support the establishment of a Project Implementation Unit (PIU) in BFD for implementation of component one and three. The PIU will provide necessary support for financial management, social and environmental safeguards, communication and procurement to Arannayk Foundation (AF).
