This study's overall aim is to provide local decision-makers an effective planning approach for minimizing the damage risk of rainfall-induced urban flooding in Dhaka in a changing climate. Specific objectives are to assess the vulnerability of the Greater Dhaka area to urban flooding and waterlogging, estimate probable ecomic damage due to climate change, develop structural adaptation measures, evaluate the reduction in ecomic damage resulting from implementing these measures, and estimate their cost.
