Description of the project: This project, launched in 2015 by the Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh (CCBD), responds to the local drinking water crisis by establishing a community led water management system. The approach to ‘Bring Women into Action’ was implemented in three coastal sub-districts, where women had to face acute problems in fetching drinking water due to increased soils’ salinity. Women gathered in groups aimed at identifying challenges and introducing sustainable, participatory water governance systems. They gained decision-making power at the local level, further enhancing the livelihoods of over 4500 inhabitants, thanks to inclusive climate action.
