01. Why the Program is?

• Sundarbans serves as a barrier against cyclones and storms, thus preserving them can significantly reduce flood risks and protect densely populated areas.
• Sundarbans act as a carbon sink, playing an important role in reducing global warming. Protecting and enhancing these natural carbon sinks is essential to mitigate climate change impacts.
• Increasing salinity intrusion is causing ponds to dry up and contaminating groundwater. This is leading to a drinking water crisis, which is worsened by climate change-induced disasters.
• The local population is heavily reliant on the Sundarbans’ resources for fishing, agriculture, and tourism. Degradation of this environment threatens their livelihoods to severe extent.
• The region has suffered degradation due to unsustainable practices and frequent cyclones and floods.
• The region is experiencing the detrimental impacts of climate change such as rising sea levels, saline water intrusion, and cyclonic storms.

03. What is the Objective?

• To enhance the resilience of the Sundarbans as a natural barrier against cyclones and storms to protect local communities and habitats.
• To develop and implement strategies to mitigate the impacts of saline intrusion, preserve freshwater sources, and ensure sustainable access to safe drinking water.
• To establish sustainable practices in fishing, agriculture, and tourism sectors to maintain income sources for local communities without degrading the environment.
• To undertake initiatives for mangrove restoration and the development of resilient infrastructure to adapt to climate change impacts and prevent further environmental degradation.
• To implement strategies to protect and enhance the carbon sequestration capacity of the Sundarbans to contribute to global climatechange mitigation efforts.
• To develop comprehensive programs to build community resilience and adaptive capacities to cope with the impacts of climate change
• To conduct educational programs and awareness campaigns for local communities on the importance of environmental protection and sustainable livelihood practices.

04. Where the Program is?

South 24 Pgs, Howrah, East Medinipur and West Medinipur districts of West Bengal, India
