  41. Bangladesh: One of the world’s most vulnerable countries to the impacts of climate change, Bangladesh is also one of the leaders in adaptation strategies, particularly in flood protection systems, disaster management schemes and irrigation programmes. Together with the UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI), its finance ministry works to analyze spending on climate change. Crisis prevention and recovery is essential to development and is a cornerstone of our work. Analyzing and understanding disaster risk is a critical first step in the process of reducing that risk. UNDP provides advice and support to disaster prone developing countries through risk management programmes, so that governments are better able to understand, predict and anticipate disasters and the potential damage they may cause. #ResilienceSunday #undp #pnud #Bangladesh #DRR #CPR #disaster #crisis #prevention #recovery #climate
