This APFED Showcase Project introduces a range of innovative practices as a package to improve the adaptive capacity of communities to recurring floods from Padma River in the Faridpur District of Bangladesh. The project also tries to deal with the dilemma one faces on how to categorize a project as an adaptation project or a developmental project. Instead of resorting to such 'fixed classifications', the project actually combines a range of practices that can provide win-win solutions to the vulnerable population of Faridpur District in Bangladesh.
