In 2016 UNICEF developed an introductory course on Children and Climate Change in collaboration with the One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership (UNCC: Learn). At that time few professionals working in child development felt that they adequately understood the impacts that climate change has on the expected results of country programming.
With the recognition of the growing importance of climate change as one of the fundamental development issues of our time, UNICEF wishes to build on this introductory course with a new and more applied course focusing on good practices in integrating climate change into country programming.

We came up with key findings of a report Buffalo herding suffers in coastal Bangladesh as soil and water grow saltier, recently published in The Earth Journalism Network.
Buffaloes are in an extensive decline in the coastal regions. The key reason is this decline includes diseases, cyclones, infertility, malnutrition, and shortages of grazing land. Most Buffalo herders have converted their grazing lands into salt fields.
People are moving away from herding buffaloes. According to the Bangladesh Agriculture Survey, from 2003 to 2019, the number of buffaloes declined by at least 51%. In the last 15 years, milk-producing buffaloes…

There’s a multi-billion-dollar yearly trade in medicines, foodstuffs and industrial products derived from plants, animals, fungi and bacteria. But many such products have been commercialized without any of the profits returning to the countries and communities whose biodiversity and traditional knowledge made the innovation possible. And in some cases, biological resources have been accessed illegally.

Discussion: Speakers briefly discussed the following topics.
There is a multi-billion-dollar yearly trade in medicines, foodstuffs and industrial products derived from plants, animals, fungi and bacteria. However, many such products have commercialised without any profits returning to the countries and communities whose biodiversity and traditional knowledge made the innovation possible. And in some cases, biological resources have been accessed illegally.
That is why, in 2010, parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) reached a new agreement — called the Nagoya Protocol — to ensure legal accesses and guarantee that any benefits arising from the…
One initiative working to combine nature-based solutions and aquaculture with active measures is protecting the mangrove. This way, it is not just producing food sustainably — it is creating jobs and protecting livelihoods, too.
Munda people in Bangladesh, a small ethnic minority has been living beside the world’s largest mangrove forest, the Sundarbans, for two centuries.
Abu Siddique, a senior journalist at the Dhaka Tribune, has described how this minority had to face the difficulties.
This minority is known as “bunos” or jungle-clearers. The Munda people came to the country from Bihar state in India. They are around 5,000 in number lives in the coastal districts of Khulna and Satkhira.
Cyclone Amphan made landfall in western Bangladesh in May, triggering a tidal surge that overtopped the riversides and left fields flooded with saltwater for…
Sundarbans is the world’s largest mangrove forest, not just the home of the Royal Bengal Tiger. It is also an essential component in the lives, livelihoods and natural saviour of this disaster-prone country.
The southern coastal region where the Sundarbans lie is isolated from infrastructure and prone to cyclones, storms, tidal upsurges, flooding, salination and a host of other natural disasters.
In recent years the cyclones Sidr (2007), Aila (2009), Roanu (2016), Fani (2019), Bulbul (2019), and Amphan (2020) have devastated lives and property in low-lying coastal areas.
Besides the constant threat of cyclones, coastal regions have the added disadvantage…
