Abstract

Built on the world's largest floodplain, Bangladesh is a country under immediate threat of climate change. This project works with two impoverished and rural communities in western Bangladesh by equipping them with a cost-efficient means for disaster resilience and agricultural biodiversity. By constructing local community seed centers, each community can implement a new system of seed banking, agricultural education, and women's rights as a means to defend against increased flood rates, droughts, and crop failure. Local and wild seed varieties are championed over government seeds as a means for agricultural bio-security and to ensure the stability of community needs in the face of unstable government assistance programs. The USD 1,875.95 Seed Center continues to push the ability of landscape architecture to perform with communities as a tool of social and economic improvement and development in the face of climate change at the micro-scale.
