Dr Katharine Vincent has recently completed an external review of the forthcoming Coastal Climate Resilient Infrastructure Project (CCRIP) in southwest Bangladesh.  Funded by the German Development Bank – KfW, Asian Development Bank and International Fund for Agricultural Development, the project aims to improve climate-resilient livelihoods in the impoverished and cyclone-exposed low-lying districts of southwest Bangladesh. It does this through three components: the first addressing transport infrastructure; the second addressing market development, and the third contributing to constructing and upgrading of cyclone shelters.
