ADRA Bangladesh Empowers Marginalized Communities with Climate-Smart Agriculture Training

ADRA Bangladesh, in collaboration with the Community Empowerment Project (CEP) – Dacope, Khulna, is taking significant strides towards sustainable food security through Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) training. This innovative approach aims to develop agricultural strategies that adapt to climate change while ensuring the empowerment of marginalized communities.

Under the CSA training program, ADRA Bangladesh is providing specialized training to enable the marginalized community to cultivate vegetables on fallow lands. Participants in the program have been introduced to effective techniques such as dike cropping, tower gardening, and the bag method, which have gained popularity among the peasant communities in Dacope Upazila of Khulna district.

Recently, the Community Empowerment Project (CEP) organized a successful Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) training session, with an impressive total of 79 participants (34 males and 45 females). This diverse group actively engaged in the training sessions, gaining valuable knowledge and skills to combat the challenges of climate change while ensuring sustainable food production.

As a testament to their commitment, CEP distributed vegetable seeds, including Bitter Gourd, Pumpkin, and Green Cucumber, to each participant at the conclusion of the training. These organic seeds will enable the empowered participants to immediately apply their newfound knowledge and begin growing their own organic vegetables.

The partnership between ADRA Bangladesh, CEP, and the participants is fostering a strong sense of empowerment and resilience within the marginalized communities. By equipping individuals with the tools and techniques of Climate-Smart Agriculture, ADRA Bangladesh is driving positive change towards sustainable food security and environmental sustainability.
