To bolster its efforts to promote climate resilience among the vulnerable communities, the Community Climate Change Project (CCCP) organised a two-day workshop at a hotel in Cox’s Bazar on March 30-31.
Representatives of all the 41 Project Implementation Partners (PIPs) attended the workshop titled “Pathway to Build Climate Resilient Bangladesh”.
Dr Fazle Rabbi Sadeque Ahmed, Project Coordinator (PC) of the CCCP, chaired the programme. His welcome speech was followed a special speech by Dr Shahpar Selim, Environment Specialist, World Bank.
She welcomed the participants and asked them to share their ideas and views on the topics chosen for the workshop.
Md Fazlul Kader, Deputy Managing Director of PKSF, delivered the inaugural speech. He, on behalf of the PKSF, welcomed and thanked everyone at the workshop.
The Day-1 workshop was divided into one-to-two-hour segments with a lunch break in between. Two presentations (one on Cop-21 and Emerging Climate Change Adaptation Issues: Bangladesh Context, and the other on CCCP Progress Review & Challenges for On-Time Quality Completion) were given by the PC of CCCP and the CCCP Program Officer concerned.
The second half of the day workshop was marked by intensive group discussions and presentations, during which the participants were highly encouraged to share their knowledge and ideas and exchange views. The first day of the workshop ended through concluding remarks by the CCCP project coordinator and the PKSF deputy managing director. Before that, they distributed certificates among the PIP officials and special awards among the best workshop participants.
The second day’s events were participated exclusively by the staff of the Project Management Unit (PMU) of the CCCP led by the PC.

The afternoon session was dedicated to PMU work plan development and discussions on how to make project interventions sustainable and durable, and disseminate knowledge and learning of the project in a wider domain. The future prospects of the project were also discussed and responsibilities were distributed among the designated officers of PMU.
The curtain dropped on the two-day workshop with the concluding speech by Dr Fazle Rabbi Sadeque Ahmed. Sightseeing arrangements were made for the workshop participants on both days after the workshop proceedings.
