Brief on ICRD

WARPO received a mandate through the ‘Coastal Zone Policy 2005’ to set up Integrated Coastal Resources Database (ICRD), which is linked to NWRD as a sub-set. In order to strengthen enabling institutional environment, section 5.5.2 of the Coastal Zone Policy proposed to set up an Integrated Coastal Resources Database (ICRD).

Data of different sectors of coastal zone of Bangladesh (19 coastal districts) are kept in ICRD. ICRD provides means to prepare an up-datable rich picture of vulnerabilities and opportunities in the coast and usable for decision & policy makers.
