Our Goals

Within five years, CREWSnet will significantly increase the climate resilience of vulnerable populations in Bangladesh.

Goal: Empower people, communities, governments, and civil society to better plan for and respond to climate change by creating a public good that is locally driven and globally scalable.

This goal will lead to the following intermediate outcomes:

  • People in vulnerable communities in western Bangladesh are better informed and use BRAC services to proactively adapt to climate change.
  • City and local governments, NGOs, and the private sector offer services and technologies to help people to adapt at a larger scale.

Starting with the most climate-vulnerable areas of Bangladesh, our vision is to build and demonstrate the CREWSnet forecasting system, development model, and intervention tools within five years, with the intent to expand and transition this capability for sustainment as a global public good.
