What is the community view and how do they respond to practiced water management system in Bangladesh and Dutch delta in terms of future climate vulnerability? How does community resilience be assessed in a flood vulnerable rural area of Bangladesh delta? How does a knowledge approach contribute to enhance the community resilience in rural delta of Bangladesh in context of climate risk?
