In our work, we visited Bagerhat, Khulna, Jessore, Gopalganj, Cox’s Bazar, Noakhali, Lakshmipur, Pirojpur, Satkhira Districts.

There, high population growth, a low literacy rate, and problematic sanitation systems, combined with frequent tidal surges and cyclones, make life challenging for the people who live there.

Thus, even among households living adjacent to the same street, we witnessed different adaption techniques.
