Innovations and Actions on Adaptation to Climate Change and Conservation of Biodiversity through Traditional Knowledge and Customary Sustainable Use

  1. 1. Innovations and actions on adaptation to climate change and conservation of biodiversity through traditional knowledge and customary sustainable use RCE Sundarbans, Bangladesh Issues/challenges: The Sundarbans, a globally important ecosystem, is now vulnerable due to anthropogenic pressures (e.g. over-harvesting, pollution, coastal development, destructive fishing and habitat degradation, climate change, intense and frequent natural disasters) amidst fragile institutions and ineffective command-driven governance system. RCE Strategy and Response: A first initiative in Bangladesh involving a partnership of premier public and private universities and leading think-tanks, collaborating with local schools as well as non-formal and informal education stakeholders, with direct involvement of different communities organised as Cooperatives of traditional resource users (TRUs) to undertake innovation and actions on adaptation to climate and conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity through promotion of traditional knowledge and customary sustainable use.
