IMPACTS OF STRUCTURAL MITIGATION MEASURES ON PERCEPTIONS OF COMMUNITY FLOOD RESILIENCE: EXPERIENCES FROM HAOR COMMUNITIES OF BANGLADESH

Community perceptions of flood resilience hinge upon the translation of their impressions of events in the built environment, which influence that community’s ability to resist, cope with and recover from the adverse impacts of flooding. Any change in the built environment with structural mitigation measures, moderates community perceptions of resilience. These structures may be constructed.. Read More

Drivers of mangrove ecosystem service change in the Sundarbans of Bangladesh

Mangroves are now well known to provide a range of ecosystem services that benefit local populations, though such ecosystem services are at risk from mangrove deforestation and degradation across much of the tropics. This study aimed to identify the natural and anthropogenic drivers of change that affect ecosystem services of the Sundarbans mangrove forest. Secondary.. Read More

Deconstructing resilience: why gender and power matter in responding to climate stress in Bangladesh

Resilience is increasingly becoming the new buzz word. This paper examines the utility of the concept of resilience for understanding the gendered experiences of women to climate stress, through case study research in South-west Bangladesh. It provides evidence that resilience, as commonly understood, is inadequate for understanding the intersecting vulnerabilities that women face because of.. Read More

Adapting to climate change by water management organisations: enablers and barriers

Climate change will be particularly experienced though the medium of water. Water organisations, that are managing societal and ecological needs for water, are therefore likely to experience the impact the most. This study reviews the current literature regarding adaptation to climate change by water management organisations and associated barriers. Literature on adaptive capacity is growing.. Read More

Assessing wetland services for improved development decision-making: a case study of mangroves in coastal Bangladesh

Mangroves provide valuable ecosystem services for the wellbeing of coastal communities. Assessment and valuation of these mangroves services are increasingly advocated in development and conservation decision-making. Translating the values of services into more explicit monetary terms requires understanding of stakeholder activities, socio-economic context and local organizational structure to effectively support decision-making. Based on a survey.. Read More
