In disaster-prone Bangladesh, a UNICEF-supported programme helps children stay in school

Low-lying Bangladesh is one of the countries most affected by climate change, and the people who live in the Chars – small islands created by floods or erosion in the vast Ganges delta – are the most vulnerable of all.
The UNICEF-supported Education in Emergencies and Post-Crisis Transition programme, also known as Back on Track, is an innovative programme designed to rebuild education systems, often in countries working to make the transition from crisis to normal development. Back on Track also provides comprehensive instruction on disaster risk reduction, so students and teachers know how to stay safe during emergencies.
