Communities in Char Juwar Satra, Kurigram are constructing climate resilient housing to prevent inundation during floods
Families in Char Juwar Satra of Ulipur, Kurigram are constructing climate resilient housing (a two storied tin-shed structure, locally known as "Khudibari") to prevent inundation during floods. A local NGO called 'Face Bangladesh Foundation' has trained the local people and provided financial resources to source local materials and construct "Khudibaris". During floods, the ground floor is used for keeping cattle while the family members take shelter on the first floor. So far 15 families in this Char have built "Khudibari" for themselves.
