The motto of SDA is the “service for the disadvantaged people”. Most of our program people lives in the rural area of the southern coastal area of Bangladesh. Present climate change researches and natural hits has already proved that the coastal areas are the mostly vulnerable and disaster prone. About 90% of total population dependent on field based agriculture or rivers based fishing related jobs.
Every year different types of natural disasters’ hit these specific areas, and all these natural disasters directly hit the agriculture at first, as a result the farmers’ loss their crops, poultry, fishes, livestock, land, households’ resources and even their profession. They fall in a great danger and can not fulfill their daily needs regarding the life and livelihoods to ensure their food security properly. All these changes threaten the food security, livelihoods, strengthening good governance, health and education especially of the poor and lower middle class families.
In light of these situations, SDA feels urget to assist the most vulnerable rural people of Bangladesh to overcome soaring food prices and boost their agricultural production and ensure food security at the household and community levels through the provision of different inputs. SDA thinks that there is a great scope of works for agro based sector through capacity development and establishing linkage to the beneficiary households’ with IGA for their secured and better lives and livelihoods.
Bangladesh is generally known as a hazard-prone country. Most of the physical contexts of vulnerability may be attributed to water related hazards, owing primarily to two contrasting features: too much water in monsoon and too less water in the dry season. The geographic realities, the distribution of water resources, topography, and regional dimension of availability of water give rise to additional contexts of the vulnerability to frequently occurring hazards. Climate change induced contexts such as temperature; rainfall and humidity interplay with physical characteristics and give rise to seasonal dimensions of vulnerability. Under such, the rates of deprivations have been increased. As a result, the numbers and types of violation of human rights as well as sufferings of people are increasing alarmingly.
