  • 2017

UN Women Bangladesh and ACDI/VOCA brought together 50 women leaders from around the south-west of Bangladesh to further understand the challenges and opportunities of rural women in severely climate-affected areas of the country. This report reflects the discussions and concerns of women leaders in resilience, disaster preparedness, and climate change, and gives key recommendations for.. Read More

Mangroves as Protection from Storm Surges in Bangladesh

This paper evaluates the protective capacity of mangrove forests against storm surge in seven coastal locations of Bangladesh, where surge heights can range from 1.5 to 9 meters. Estimates confirm varying levels of protection from different species, width, and density of mangrove forests. The findings highlight that mangroves must be used along with built infrastructure..

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..

Strategies and Barriers to Adaptation of Hazard-Prone Rural Households in Bangladesh

The global farming communities have already experienced the impact of climate change in a range of ways and made their adaptation decision. Adaptation is, however, context-specific and varies across and within countries, which warrants location specific research. This chapter presents the strategies and barriers to adaptation of hazards-prone rural households in developing countries using Bangladesh.. Read More

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

Extending Community Operational Research to Address Institutional Aspects of Societal Problems: Experiences from Peri-urban Bangladesh

Community operational research (COR) helps local stakeholders address complex messy problems related to public goods. Many of these problems feature an institutional dimension, whereby institutions refer to rules that structure behaviour and interactions in society. If a sound analysis of the institutional dimension in such cases is limited in scope, or even completely absent, this.. Read More

Identifying dam-induced wetland changes using an inundation frequency approach: The case of the Atreyee River basin of Indo-Bangladesh

Identification and monitoring of hydro-ecologically complex, seasonal floodplain wetlands poses a great challenge, but is essential for sustainable management of wetland and wetland resources. The present paper concentrates on wetland delineation and monitoring in the Atreyee River floodplain with reference to the flow regulation imposed by a dam built in 2012. We applied a water..

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
