The purpose of the visit was to see how the extreme climate events such as extreme heat wave, extreme precipitation and flood affect the construction and utilization of the projects. We visited one construction site at Mirsarai Economic Zone, Chittagong and two construction sites in Dhaka (Padma Bridge Approach, Mawa; Flyover construction at Dhaka-Mawa Highway). There was a meeting at BUET-JIDPUS and they agreed to work with BUET on this very hot topic.
