Future changes in water requirements of Boro rice in the face of climate change in North-West Bangladesh

Understanding future changes in crop water requirements and irrigation demand in the context of climate change is essential for long-term water resources management and agricultural planning. This study investigates the impacts of climate change on future water requirements of dry season Boro rice. Climate scenarios for four North-West districts of Bangladesh were constructed from the outputs of.. Read More

Climate projections and extremes in dynamically downscaled CMIP5 model outputs over the Bengal delta: a quartile based bias-correction approach with new gridded data

In the era of global warning, the insight of future climate and their changing extremes is critical for climate-vulnerable regions of the world. In this study, we have conducted a robust assessment of Regional Climate Model (RCM) results in a monsoon-dominated region within the new Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) and the latest..

Socio-economic Factors Affecting Fertilization Sustainability in Bangladesh: Effects of Traditional Way of Fertilization and Rental Land Farming

Abstract: The study focuses on how socio-economic and demographic indicators affect fertilization sustainability (excessive amount of fertilization). Principally we aim to examine the significance magnitude of the effects of three socio-demographic variables such as traditional way of fertilization, rental land farming, and farmers’ younger age on over-fertilization in Bangladesh and other developing countries. In 1960s,.. Read More

Where is the coast? Monitoring coastal land dynamics in Bangladesh: An integrated management approach using GIS and remote sensing techniques

This paper draws upon the application of GIS and remote sensing techniques to investigate the dynamic nature and management aspects of land in the coastal areas of Bangladesh. The geomorphological characteristic of the coastal areas is highly dynamic where land erosion and accretion with different rates remain a constant phenomenon. This study focuses on three.. Read More

A Review of Food Security and the Potentials to Develop Spatially Informed Food Policies in Bangladesh

Background Food security globally depends primarily on three components: food availability, food access, and food utilization. Regional variations of these components may affect food security via spatial differences in natural, social or economic conditions and the interaction of these in a complex environmental system. Purpose It is important to understand the regional variation of food.. Read More

Flood vulnerability, local perception and gender role judgment using multivariate analysis: A problem-based “participatory action to Future Skill Management” to cope with flood impacts

  • , et al.
  • 2017

Flood impacts and social vulnerability are substantial threats for the sustainable development of the developing world. This study focuses on some particular points of flood impacts and the local concept towards existing management capacity. Additionally, significant focus was given to gender roles and how they may impact measures that aim towards reducing flood risks. Both.. Read More

Evaluating the contribution of diversified shrimp-rice agroecosystems in Bangladesh and West Bengal, India to social-ecological resilience

Shrimp-rice farming practices in the coastal areas of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India are reviewed. It is apparent that this integrated aquaculture-agriculture system is suited to environmental and hydrological conditions found in specific areas. Production strategies devised by farmers demonstrate that the diversified culture of shrimp with rice is technically feasible. Shrimp-rice agroecosystems exhibit several.. Read More

Role of Climate Smart Agriculture Technologies in Sustainable Crop Production by the Coastal Farmers of Bangladesh

The study was conducted to find out the role of Climate Smart Agricultural (CSA) technologies in sustainable crop production. The data were collected from 60 randomly selected coastal farmers from the period of August 2017. A mixed method (personal interview and Focus group discussion) was used to determine the role of CSA technologies in sustainable.. Read More
