Preface 
A huge number of people of south-Asia have been affected due to climate change. Already millions of people of Bangladesh have been shocked by climate change, that’s why no other country but Bangladesh is well-known tothe shock of climate change.Actually, the geographical location, flood impact, boundary line close to the sea, extra pressure of population,extreme poverty, dependency on nature and natural resources are the reasons why climate change impacts areresulting extremely in Bangladesh. That’s why it is essential for the people of Bangladesh to have understandingabout the priority based challenges.At a time, these challenges are required to analyze and consider with the lifestyle of the endangered communitypeople of Bangladesh, so that they can know and understand the ways of their lives and livelihoods developmentcapabilities by coping with the climate change impacts in a satisfactory manner.Coping with the climate change impacts the vulnerable community can acquire the adaptability, with this purposeOxfam is implementing a community or social based adaptation project called “the Resilience through EconomicEmpowerment, Climate Adaptation, Leadership and Learning (REE-CALL)” The people’s climate uncertainty and its related disaster and climate adaptation capabilities, such as, economicempowerment, ensuring the sustainable lifestyle security of male and female and leadership development in thedisaster management etc., of disaster prone char, haor of the Northern regions and the beel of the southern andcoastal regions of the country, can be done by this project. There are so many challenges to implement this two years pilot project, such as, climate adaptation, disaster riskmanagement, adaptation mechanism and natural resources management etc. This manual has been prepared toprovide the knowledge and technical information related to mentioned challenges. This manual also will be used totrain up the associated teams for their capacity building in this project implementation.In this training manual there are four chapters containing about climate change and adaptation, adaptationcommittee formation, disaster management and adaptation and natural resources management and lifestylestrategy respectfully. As a part of rights based approaches, climate adaptation, natural resources management anddisaster risk management related law based idea, international policies have been discussed in various chapters inthis manual. It has been given priority to the women and the vulnerability of the marginal people. I hope that thismanual will help the associated teams in charge to implement the REE-CALL project by developing their knowledgein achieving management capacity and this also will be helpful for personnel who deals with climate adaptation anddisaster risk management."The information and data are used in this training manual are followed different write up, journal of Dr Ahsan UddinAhmed, Scientist, Executive Director, Center for Global Change and IPCC. PCVA guideline of REE- CALL partnerorganization POPI, CRA Guideline of CDMP, DRM manual of Oxfam Humanitarian team, 5th DIPECHO plan of South Asia and the book published by SLM and CSRL are also used as reference book/ guideline of this document.I acknowledge to all for the support".Anik AsadProgram CoordinatorOxfam
