Participants drawn government, non-government and private organizations underwent a theoretical course for the first three days and were taken to Manikgonj for a field visit on the fourth day. On the concluding day of the training course, the participants were awarded with certificates.

“It is important that we should think about climate issues in all our workplaces,” ICCCAD Director Dr Saleemul Haq told the Dhaka Tribune.

“The training will help to build a community to face challenges relating to climate change and will help the participants and their organizations to use innovative ideas to face critical situations.

“Training of such kind has been arranged for the first time in Bangladesh. We will arrange such kind of programs every year.”
