Analysis of and lessons learned from civil society advocacy on climate change
CARE started its operations in Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) in 1949. Today, CARE Bangladesh amplifies the voices of the poor and the marginalized in ways that influence public opinion, development practices, and policy at all levels by drawing on grassroots experience and relationships with civil society, government, and the private sector.
We have made a long-term commitment to specific marginalized and vulnerable groups to achieve a lasting impact on the underlying causes of poverty and social injustice.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.

Why is gender important in climate change adaptation?
Mapping Emerging Trends and Risk Hotspots
CARE’s approach to climate change adaptation is grounded in the knowledge that people must be empowered to transform and secure their rights and livelihoods. It also recognizes the critical role that local and national institutions, as well as public policies, play in shaping people’s adaptive capacity.
Adaptation to climate change is critical to sustainable development and will require action across multiple sectors at all levels. Poor households must be supported to adopt resilient livelihood strategies.
We are beginning to see the results of our efforts in promoting, protecting and supporting optimal infant and young child feeding (IYCF) and related maternal nutrition practices in Indonesia, Nicaragua, Sierra Leone, Bangladesh, and Peru over the last five years. During this year, we have conducted final evaluations and closed programs in Indonesia, Nicaragua and Sierra Leone. Even as we moved towards the end of the implementation period in those countries we continued to learn valuable lessons and strengthen our programs with data from mid-term evaluations.
