Perspectives of Hydropower in Sustainable Development Goals: Focused on Nepal and beyond Borders

Abstract Nepal, a Himalayan country is bordered in the north by China and in other three sides by India. Being a mountainous country, it is blessed with several perennial snow-fed rivers. The elevation difference of Himalayan rivers, flowing from above 4000 meters to below 200 meters favored several high head hydropower sites. Narrow gorges with.. Read More

Difficult travels: Delta plans don’t land in the Chao Phraya delta

Abstract Bangladesh, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand have large river deltas. The first three deltas have international commitments for so-called delta plans: large-scale national efforts to reshape deltas in light of future economic growth and climate change. Thailand’s Chao Phraya delta has no such commitments. Why is this the case? This article proposes that Thailand’s absence.. Read More


Modelling soil organic carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas mitigation potentials in Bangladesh agriculture

Abstract: Soil organic carbon (SOC) is important not only for improving soil quality but also for contributing to climate change mitigation in agriculture. However, net greenhouse gas (GHG) balances, including methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), need to be considered, as practices that increase SOC might increase GHG emissions. Sustainable use of soil resources needs.. Read More

Future Floods in Bangladesh under 1.5°C, 2°C, and 4°C Global Warming Scenarios

Abstract This is the first study to assess the possible changes in floods in the Bangladesh part of the densely populated Ganges–Brahmaputra–Meghna (GBM) delta at 1.5°C, 2°C, and 4°C global warming levels. This study was undertaken with the aim of joining the efforts of the global scientific community to assist in the preparation of the.. Read More


A short review and a preliminary regeneration study of a commercially important Bangladeshi potato variety: Diamant

Abstract: Potato is one of the most important solanaceous tuber crops occupying the fourth position worldwide among all the food crops. Despite not being native to our country, potato production is growing in last few decades. Potato is important to tackle nutritional security as it is a very good source of many essential vitamins, minerals.. Read More

People’s perception on agricultural vulnerabilities to climate change and SLR in Bangladesh: adaptation strategies and explanatory variables

Abstract The objective of this research is to evaluate people’s perception on vulnerabilities of agriculture and to explore effective adaptation options with identifying the underlying demographic, socio-economic and other relevant variables that influence the adaptation strategies in the sea level rise (SLR) hazard induced coastal areas of Bangladesh. The study finds that climate change and.. Read More

Geospatial Monitoring of Land Surface Temperature Effects on Vegetation Dynamics in the Southeastern Region of Bangladesh from 2001 to 2016

Abstract Land surface temperature (LST) can significantly alter seasonal vegetation phenology which in turn affects the global and regional energy balance. These are the most important parameters of surface–atmosphere interactions and climate change. Methods for retrieving LSTs from satellite remote-sensing data are beneficial for modeling hydrological, ecological, agricultural and meteorological processes on the Earth’s surface… Read More

Climate Change, Gender and Vulnerable Groups in Bangladesh

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY An increasing number of evidences in recent years have clearly established the fact that anthropogenic climate change is a reality. According to latest findings of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other concerned organizations/agencies, developing countries are expected to suffer the most from the negative impacts of climate change.
