Bangladesh has a long history of natural disasters and remains vulnerable to disasters and the impacts of climate change. Bangladesh has frequently experienced disasters such as floods, cyclones, waterlogging, fires, earthquakes, and landslides. Children are among those who suffer the most during disasters, facing risks such as displacement, family separation, injuries, violence, and diseases. In addition, incidents of violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect increase in the aftermath of a disaster. UNICEF Bangladesh supports the government-led response to provide the most vulnerable children and women with an integrated package of lifesaving services that include health, nutrition, water and sanitation, education, child protection, and risk communication. Given the increase in climate-related hazards, UNICEF also works on strengthening preparedness, disaster risk reduction, and resilience building of children, communities, and institutions.
