Bangladesh-Iran-India

Regional knowledge and experience on climate change, vulnerabilities and adaptation actions will be shared between organizations such as Centre for Coastal Environmental Education in Bangladesh and WWF India (Sundarbans Delta); WWF-Pakistan and Andishe Ensanshahr, an Iranian nongovernmental organization (Indus Delta and Dasht Delta), who will be invited to take part in this learning and sharing.

Centre for Coastal Environment, Bangladesh

Centre for Coastal Environment is a nonprofit grass roots environmental nongovernmental organization in Bangladesh for the protection and sustainable development of coastal ecosystem through local initiatives and participation. Environmental education training (EET) for the primary school teachers; biodiversity conservation involving Sunderbans, UNESCO World Heritage site stakeholders; community based mangroves regeneration and plantation; sustainable harvesting of Sunderbands resources and climate change adaptation strategies are the main activities for environmental awareness raising of the coastal communities. Mangrove restoration along the coastal embankment involving Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) leads co-management approaches. Mangrove based entrepreneurship development involving Sunderbans resource harvesters, the bouali (wood and thatch cutter), mouali (honey extractor) and jellay (fish and crab harvester) is the key to poverty reduction.

WWF-India

WWF-India started life as a wildlife conservation organization. It was founded in 1969 as a Charitable Public Trust, with the express objective of ensuring the conservation of the country's wildlife and wild habitats. The official launch of the Indian National Appeal (name given for National offices by WWF-International) was done by the then PM Indira Gandhi on 27th Nov 1969 at the India International Centre, New Delhi Aptly, it was then known as the World Wildlife Fund-India. This was much before the terms "wildlife" and "environment" had caught government or public attention. Even the Wildlife (Protection) Act came into being three years later, in 1972.
