The Sundarbans in Bangladesh is the largest mangrove forest in the world, which is facing the risk of climate change impacts. 

The Sundarbans Development and Alternative Resources Integration (SUNDARI) project is being implemented by Concern Worldwide, Bangladesh. The primary aim of the SUNDARI project is to improve the biodiversity of the Sundarbans through reducing human pressure on Sundarbans Reserve Forest (SRF) resources. 

This book captures the experiences of the SUNDARI project initiatives as documented by the end line analysis. The success stories and achievements conveyed in the chapters reflect the lessons emerged from the project interventions to establish a community based conservation model.
