PWRDF is accepting donations for Hurricane Dorian relief.

Bangladesh

Emergency Relief

Bangladesh is the one of the most adversely affected regions on the planet by climate change. It is projected that, by 2020, 500 to 750 million people will be affected by lack of water caused by climate change around the world. With funds provided by PWRDF, four (each roughly 250 meters long) bamboo bindings (locally known as Chatka) were built to reduce effects of river erosion. Ten thousand mangrove saplings were planted as part of the effort to regenerate mangrove in coastal areas to improve coastal ecosystem and reduce vulnerabilities to cyclones. Thirty vulnerable women received indigenous goats to help them reduce their vulnerabilities to the effects of climate change.
