Impacts of Climate Change on Crop Production in Bangladesh: A Review

Climate change and its impact on human-environment are immeasurable because of its multidimensional effects. But the effect is not same for all countries, it depends on the countries geographical settings. Alongside location, education of the people, environmental awareness, somewhat might minimize the probability of loss in response to any kinds of disasters. Undertaken study was.. Read More

Health consequences of climate change in Bangladesh: An overview of the evidence, knowledge gaps and challenges

Abstract Climate change affects almost all aspects of human life, including health. This is particularly true in densely populated and low lying deltas such as Bangladesh. However, the climate-health nexus is a relatively poorly explored domain of research, which is a cause for concern given the country’s intrinsic vulnerability to climatic impacts. The impact of..

Carbon Pricing to Contribute to Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Efforts of Bangladesh: Design features and rationale

Executive Summary Background and Objectives In tandem with sustained economic growth in the last three decades, led by industrial sector, Bangladesh’s overall energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission have increased. As the country aspires to become a high-income country by 2041, the trends of energy consumption and GHG emission are expected to continue.. Read More

Severe salinity contamination in drinking water and associated human health hazards increase migration risk in the southwestern coastal part of Bangladesh

  • , et al.
  • 2019

Abstract Bangladesh is a deltaic country and is highly vulnerable to climate change and sea level rise. This study explores population migration risk in relation to communal crisis due to socioeconomic vulnerability, drinking water scarcity, and health threats caused by salinity hazards. For this, we conducted a household questionnaire survey as well as, focus group discussions, key informant interviews, and field observations. To identify the drinking.. Read More


Climate change, environmental stress and loss of livelihoods can push people towards illegal activities: a case study from coastal Bangladesh

This paper aims to understand how environmental stressors influence people’s livelihood options in the coastal belt of Bangladesh. We argue that environmental stressors such as cyclones, riverbank erosion, salinity intrusion, and floods have negative impacts on people’s lives by reducing their livelihood options. Twelve in-depth interviews (Livelihood Histories) and twelve Focus Group Discussions (FGD) based.. Read More

Transferring Climate Induced Disaster Risks: policy, practices and readiness of Bangladesh

Abstract Globally, the weather related extreme events and associated loss and damages (L&D) have increased significantly. With of high confidence, the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC AR5) published in 2014 stated that the risks associated with those extreme weather events will further increase, putting disproportionate burden of climate stress..

Bangladesh I: Climate Change Impacts, Mitigation and Adaptation in Developing Countries

Abstract The aim of this book is to provide information to scientists and local government to help them better understand the particularities of the local climate. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges to society. It can lead to serious impacts on production, life and environment on a global scale. Higher temperatures and sea.. Read More

Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: Opportunities and Challenges in Coastal Bangladesh

Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) is the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services as part of a climate change adaptation strategy. In coastal Bangladesh, EbA is implemented to enhance the resilience of coastal agriculture, fisheries, forestry, and settlements against the impacts of both climatic and non-climatic stressors. This chapter discusses the current status and challenges of EbA.. Read More


The Role of State Broadcasting Media and Education in Addressing Climate Change in Bangladesh

Abstract Media and education undoubtedly play an important role in alerting and preparing people from many kinds of natural calamities and disasters.
