informal settlements card game

A youth driven approach to climate adaptation in informal settlements

We partnered with Plan International and the Social Economic and Enhancement Programme (SEEP) to run a youth-driven project to strengthen the resilience and adaptive capacity of disadvantaged communities living in an informal settlement in Dhaka, Bangladesh from 2016 to 2019.

This card game was developed as part of this collaboration, with the aim to share the experience and knowledge gained though this project, to assist other organisations, urban practitioners and decision makers working in similar vulnerable contexts to prompt discussion with youth and community groups, and gain useful inspiration for their own projects. 

Download the card game to learn how to minimize, withstand and recover from negative physical, social, and environmental impacts of climate change, in particular flooding and waterlogging.

This collaboration was made possible thanks to the support of the Nordic Climate Facility. For more information please contact: Sara Candiracci
