Words from our Climate expert and Executive Director

I am wholeheartedly grateful to all the change-makers of CNRS working at different levels; CNRS would not have been able to reach its goal without the effort of these change-makers. The CNRS family is also thankful to all the development partners for upholding their trust in CNRS. In this reporting year, we have implemented a total of 31 projects, which cut across all the thematic areas of CNRS. Our sense of urgency is always motivating us to avoid any kind of procrastination without being complacent. We are, indeed, content to inform our development partners and stakeholders that we have achieved most of our targets of the reporting year, which gives us utmost satisfaction. In the entirety of the reporting year, we face and overcame the outbreak of Covid-19 crisis, which had been the prime challenge of the year. By complying with the directives of the Bangladesh Government, CNRS prepared an operational modality during the Covid-19 pandemic and persisted with its organizational activities by following this operational modality. Staff members of CNRS donated one day’s salary to support people who were struggling to cope with the pandemic. It is worth mentioning that under two Covid-19 response projects, CNRS provided emergency response support to people affected for Covid-19 pandemic. We also provided cash for work support to both Rohingya and host communities through WFP and UNHCR supported projects. I believe the key ingredients for our success, are the resolute guidance from our EC and general body, the continual support of development partners and the sincere participation of the project participants and their firm effort to thrive for success. I take this opportunity to thank you all.
