This atlas provides spatial information about Bangladesh and thematic maps necessary for assessing future development investments in the agriculture and water sectors for climate risks and geophysical hazards. It is also intended to support the formulation of co-beneficial options for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and management. The two-volume atlas is a major output of the project Establishing a Climate Risk Screening System for Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation into National Development Budgeting Activities in Bangladesh under the Asian Development Bank’s regional knowledge and support (capacity development) technical assistance Action on Climate Change in South Asia (2013–2018). The Bangladesh Climate and Disaster Risk Atlas is composed of Hazards—Volume I and Exposures, Vulnerabilities, and Risks—Volume II.
