Bangladesh - The Heat is On! Towards a Climate Resilient Education System in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is one of the countries most affected by climate change due to its location on one of the world largest deltas. Bangladesh ranks 15 out of 163 countries in UNICEF’s children’s climate risk index in 2021.

The report, commissioned by UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia, examines the direct and indirect impacts of climate change on the education system; the education sector's response to climate change using seven key education systems components (i.e., policies, plans and strategies; finance; curriculum, teaching and learning; teacher capacity development; communication, coordination and partnership; school/community student participation platforms; monitoring, evaluation and accountability); and offers key recommendations to make the education system more resilient in the face of increasing climate change risks.
