Community Development Center

Partner Type:
Nongovernmental Organization

The Community Development Center (CODEC) is a Bangladeshi organization representing and supporting the country’s coastal and river communities, with particular focus on the fishing communities. CODEC envisions a broader coastal community in which individuals and communities embrace new and differentiated forms of institutions, utilize their natural resources for secure and sustained livelihood, and become rights-demanding citizens in a physical, social and economic setting increasingly impacted by climate change. CODEC, through local and international donor support, provides interventions in agriculture,  food security, education, microfinance, environmental sustainability and capacity building.
