Homestead Level Plinth Raising Promoted Resilience

SANGRAM (Sangathita Gramunnyan Karmasuchi) started the activities of climate change adaptation through the project Adaptation with Alternative Livelihood Opportunity (AALO) under proper guideline of CCCP-PKSF on 1/2/2014. The first activity of the project is homestead level plinth raising. A densely populated village named Falishatoli located adjacent to the river Payera. 90% peoples are engaged with capture fishing in terms of leading their livelihoods. As most of the land is in low, so the houses are always inundated by water surges. Considering the situation AALO sub-project included the village under its climate resilience activities. Home of Farid Hawlader, Panna Khan and Kanchan Mridha are adjacent to the ferry ghat that contains 25 households. Homestead level of these 25 households raised up to 3 feet from the highest flood level in 2 clusters. Their livelihoods were too vulnerable to survive before plinth raising. The people of these households used to face many enormous problems in terms of movement even survive in respective houses. Family members used to suffer from many water borne diseases, unhygienic conditions and floating garbage’s here and there. Everyone of above 25 families got plinth raising support. Plinth raising support make favorable to install DHTW, establish homestead gardening, favorable conditions of goat and duck rearing in slatted houses, households level sanitary latrines set up. Above collective activities have lessen the climate induced risks and vulnerabilities of the families depending only one cause make free from regular inundation. Homestead gardening, duck and goat rearing enhanced their income generating activities, DHTW installation filled up the scarcity of drinking water and household’s level sanitary latrine has removed water and air pollution. Above situation has promoted the coping capacity of different environmental shocks that makes them climate resilient. The people of these households are grateful to the CCCP-PKSF as well as SANGRAM.
