ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE THROUGH DISASTER-RESILIENT HOUSING PRACTICE IN THE COASTAL ZONE OF BANGLADESH.

ABSTRACT The coastal area of Bangladesh has experienced frequent cyclones associated with storm surges in the last few decades. After the 1990s, activities like construction of cyclone shelter, early warning system, and awareness building program plays a very effective role to reduce the fatalities and damages due to disaster in the coastal area. Though the.. Read More

SOIL SALINITY HAZARD ASSESSMENT IN BANGLADESH COASTAL ZONE

ABSTRACT The coastal zone of Bangladesh covers about 20% of total land of the country and over 30% of the cultivable lands. According to the National Adaptation Program of Action (NAPA), water related hazards due to climate change are likely to become a critical issue for Bangladesh. Salinity in surface water, ground water and soil.. Read More

ESTIMATION OF THE CHANGES IN WETLANDS OF DHAKA CITY FROM LANDSAT IMAGES

ABSTRACT Wetlands form a unique mosaic of habitats with an extremely rich diversity of flora and fauna, which are invaluable components of the environment, ecology, resource potential and biodiversity in Bangladesh. Wetland systems are vulnerable to changes in quantity and quality of their water supply, and it is expected that climate change will have a.. Read More

Geospatial multi-criteria analysis for identifying high priority clean energy investment opportunities: A case study on land-use conflict in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a globally important emerging economy with rapidly increasing energy demand. The Bangladeshi government’s primary capacity expansion plan is to install 13.3 GW of new coal by 2021, including the 1.3 GW Rampal coal power plant to be developed in the Sundarbans. Inadequate geospatial and economic information on clean energy investment opportunities are often.. Read More

THE RISE OF A NEW DISASTER IN BANGLADESH: ANALYSIS OF CHARACTERISTICS AND VULNERABILITIES OF LIGHTNING DURING MARCH TO SEPTEMBER 2018

ABSTRACT Bangladesh is a country of disasters, mostly triggered by the hydro-meteorological hazards, with climate change directly influencing their intensity and frequency. In the recent years lightning incidents are becoming more frequent and claiming more lives than the past. This research is a systematic effort to understand the characteristics and vulnerabilities of lightning hazards based.. Read More

Climate Change Induced Migration: Empirical Evidences from the Southwest Coastal Region of Bangladesh

Abstract Over the last few decades Bangladesh has already experienced the emergence of recurrent floods, severe cyclones, water logging, salinity intrusions, and riverbank erosion as the climatic push factors that have forced highly exposed and vulnerable coastal communities to migrate especially from the southwestern zone. However, only few ground level efforts have been made so.. Read More

Climate change induced salinity intrusion and its implications for agriculture

Abstract An estimated 1.06 million hectare of arable land in Bangladesh and 6.7 million hectares in India is affected by salinity (Rabbani 2013). Salinity intrusion adversely affects the livelihoods of farmers, especially rice cultivators and fisherfolks, vegetations, soil quality, and infrastructure in these areas (Habiba et al. 2014). The net cropped area in coastal Bangladesh.. Read More

Exploring the Importance of Culture and Children’s Engagement in Climate Change Adaptation

Abstract Climatic hazards have served to be a prominent and perpetual risk to societies and individuals throughout our time, and the subsequent vulnerability can galvanise adaptive resource management. The adaptive capacity reflects the ability of a community to act collectively to any vulnerability they face. With a special focus on Bangladesh, the first part of.. Read More

Adapting to Sea-Level Rise in the Indian Ocean: The Cases of India and Bangladesh

  • 2019

South Asia is considered to be particularly vulnerable to the impacts of anthropogenic climate change. The reasons for that fall into two broad categories. On one hand, the region is extremely diverse. Its hugely varied geomorphologic formations, ecosystems, and economies render the region susceptible to a range of adverse climate change impacts (Field et al.,.. Read More

The nexus between extreme weather events, sexual violence, and early marriage: a study of vulnerable populations in Bangladesh

This study aims to explore whether a relationship exists between extreme weather events, sexual violence, and early marriage. We selected two districts in Bangladesh that are vulnerable to extreme weather events: Sunamganj, which experiences flash flooding, and Brahmanbaria, which experiences cyclones and related floods. Survey data was collected from 120 randomly selected household heads from.. Read More
