Effects of Microbial Biomass and Activity on Carbon Sequestration in Soils under Different Planted Forests in Chittagong, Bangladesh

Microbial biomass, activity and ecophysiological indices together with important physical and chemical properties were studied in soils under four different planted forests (Acacia auriculiformis, Artocarpus chaplasha, Dipterocarpus turbinatus and Lagerstroemia speciosa) in Chittagong, Bangladesh. The principal objective of the study was to investigate microbial activity related to carbon sequestration under different tree species. The mean.. Read More

Sustainability of groundwater use for irrigation of dry-season crops in northwest Bangladesh

  • Dey, et al.
  • 2017

natural replenishment of aquifer such as, total annual rainfall significantly reduced by about 25.6% during 1981–2014; average annual river water levels slightly declined; wetland areas significantly reduced by about one-third; while the area irrigated for dry season rice (boro), the main driver of groundwater depletion, has increased about three folds during 1981–2014. Efficient irrigation management.. Read More

Living with the Risks of Cyclone Disasters in the South-Western Coastal Region of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. Cyclone disasters that affect millions of people, destroy homesteads and livelihoods, and trigger migration are common in the coastal region of Bangladesh. The aim of this article is to understand how the coastal communities in Bangladesh deal with the continuous threats of cyclones… Read More

Have we given up too much? On yielding climate representation to experts

Our representations of climate are changing, and with them the ways we claim to know our local climates, and live according to them. Amidst this destabilising change in natural and social orders, scientific representations of climate are emerging as dominant. In this perspective piece I start from post-normal science and offer two arguments against completely.. Read More

Effect of different transplanting methods on yield of Binadhan-14 (Oryza sativa L.) at late boro season under climate change

To find out the suitable planting method under climate change on the yield and yield attributes of late boro rice in Bangladesh, an experiment was conducted at Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture (BINA) farms at boro season of 2014–15. Three different sowing methods viz., direct seeding with sprouting seed & without sprouting seed and transplanting.. Read More

Climate change-related non-economic loss and damage in Bangladesh and Japan

Purpose This paper aims to assess climate change related non-economic loss and damage (NELD) through case studies of Bangladesh and Japan, evaluate how NELD are addressed in these countries and provide the ways forward for further improvement. Design/methodology/approach This paper reviewed the literature to examine NELD and looked into currently available methodologies and their limitations… Read More

Effects of the South Asian Monsoon Intraseasonal Modes on Genesis of Low Pressure Systems over Bangladesh

The quasi-biweekly oscillation (QBW) is a dominant intraseasonal mode in summer rainfall over Bangladesh. Active phases of the QBW are often accompanied by low pressure systems (LPSs) such as vortex-type lows. This study investigated the effects of two intraseasonal modes: the QBW and the boreal summer intraseasonal oscillation (BSISO), on the genesis of LPSs over.. Read More

Can Sanitary Inspection Surveys Predict Risk of Microbiological Contamination of Groundwater Sources? Evidence from Shallow Tubewells in Rural Bangladesh

Accurately assessing the microbiological safety of water sources is essential to reduce waterborne fecal exposures and track progress toward global targets of safe water access. Sanitary inspections are a recommended tool to assess water safety. We collected 1,684 water samples from 902 shallow tubewells in rural Bangladesh and conducted sanitary surveys to assess whether sanitary.. Read More

Operationalizing safe operating space for regional social-ecological systems

This study makes a first attempt to operationalize the safe operating space concept at a regional scale by considering the complex dynamics (e.g. non-linearity, feedbacks, and interactions) within a systems dynamic model (SD). We employ the model to explore eight ‘what if’ scenarios based on well-known challenges (e.g. climate change) and current policy debates (e.g… Read More
