Together with our local partners, Oxfam works to improve access to safe water, sanitation and people’s knowledge of hygiene practices in regions of Bangladesh that are vulnerable to natural disasters and climate change. We work with local authorities and communities to install, maintain and manage safe water facilities and toilets. The design and location of facilities are adapted to be resilient during natural disasters, accessible to people with disabilities, and appropriate to the needs of women and men.
