The term "climate-smart agriculture" (CSA) refers to strategies that aim to transform the agro-food industry toward more sustainable and climate-resilient practices. Better integrating the development of agricultural and climate responsiveness is the aim of the climate-smart agriculture (CSA) concept. It aims to achieve both food security and more general development goals in light of an altering environment and increasing food demand. Datascape research and consultancy already conducted a number of study focusing on climate change and adaptation, disaster risk reduction (DRR) and other social issues. Currently conducting baseline for salvation army focusing on climate change adaptation, climate smart agriculture and community development.
For CSA initiatives to sustainably increase productivity, enhance resilience, and lower/eliminate greenhouse gas emissions, the three pillars of productivity, adaptation, and mitigation must be planned (GHGs). Various nations and stakeholders are interested to develop more efficient, effective, and equitable food systems that address problems in the environmental, social, and economic dimensions across productive landscapes. Even though the concept is new and constantly changing, many of the techniques that make up CSA already exist globally and are used by farmers to manage various production risks. The institutional and financial facilitators for CSA adoption must be carefully collected to bring CSA into the mainstream. This country profile provides a glimpse of the evolving baseline created to launch a discussion on entry sites for significant CSA investments both domestically and internationally.
Long-term changes in temperature and weather patterns are referred to as climate change. These changes might be caused by natural processes, such as oscillations in the solar cycle. But since the 1800s, human activities—primarily the combustion of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas—have been the primary cause of climate change. Bangladesh, which has a population of over 165 million, is one of the most densely inhabited and naturally fragile nations in the world. Most Bangladeshis rely on the nation's natural resources to augment their incomes, which puts a great deal of burden on an already severely damaged environment. The main obstacles Bangladesh has as it moves toward becoming a middle-income nation are frequent natural disasters, drastically reduced ecological services, and a rising need for energy. Bangladesh is more vulnerable to tropical cyclones than any other nation because of its location at the very end of the flimsy delta created by the Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna Rivers. Additionally, it experiences around two-fifths of all storm surges annually. In this scenario, Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) can bring a sustainable change in Bangladesh.
The project covered the Sahansilata Project working area in 25 Villages of 15 Unions in 09 Upazila under 07 Districts with 3 clusters along western Bangladesh. (Khulna and Gopalgonj, Jashore, Narail and Magura, Dinajpur and Joypurhat.) Datascape social research unit implemented the project with the support of The Salvation Army Bangladesh Command.
