Abstract

This chapter draws on discussions about how technology has been used for climate change adaptation in Bangladesh and reflects on lessons that might be applied in Australia. It also reviews current research outcomes and reports of different organisations, and draws on the project experience of the Alternative Livelihood Program in the Context of Climate Change (ALPCC) and the Disaster Prevention in the Context of Climate Change (DPCC) projects implemented by the NGO, Prodipan. Both ALPCC and DPCC were community-based projects implemented in the coastal region of Bangladesh to support community-based adaptation to climate change for livelihood diversification, water supply management and disaster risk reduction.
