Climate Change Issues and Climate Change Negotiations: An Overview from Bangladesh Perspective

Bangladesh is the innocent victim of climate change due to its low riparian flat coastal landscape and high population density with poor financial capacity to respond to the adverse impact of climate change. Natural hazards like floods, droughts, cyclones and sea level rise are increasing day by day that will push poorer section of the.. Read More

Protocol for Mointoring of Impacts of Climate Change and Climate Variability in Bangladesh

It is now unequivocally established that climate change is a reality, and the adversities of climatic transformations pose one of the greatest challenges facing humanity today. Even a cursory observer of recent world events may very well notice the examples of extreme climatic conditions such as the record breaking rainfalls in India, Pakistan or even.. Read More


Climate change, migration and critical international security considerations

The impacts of anthropogenic climate change are expected to lead to large-scale population displacements and migrations in the coming decades, with the potential to create instability and conflict in the most vulnerable regions. An oft-cited prediction by Myers (2002) suggests that climate change and other environmental factors could lead to 200 million people being displaced.. Read More

Disaster risk reduction NGO inter-agency group learning review

Between 2005 and 2010, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded ActionAid, Christian Aid, Practical Action, Plan and Tearfund to carry out disaster risk reduction (DRR) projects. They worked together as a consortium on global advocacy and in learning and sharing lessons, as well as collaborating in some cases at a country level. The.. Read More

Avatar Image

Bangladesh is predicted to be adversely affected by climate change and climate variability. A number of climate induced hazards are already affecting many people especially in the coastal zone, low-lying areas and north-west part of the country. The government has taken a number of policy and institutional initiatives to adapt with the impacts of climate.. Read More

Impact of climate change on the stream flow of the lower Brahmaputra: trends in high and low flows based on discharge-weighted ensemble modelling

Climate change is likely to have significant effects on the hydrology. The Ganges-Brahmaputra river basin is one of the most vulnerable areas in the world as it is subject to the combined effects of glacier melt, extreme monsoon rainfall and sea level rise. To what extent climate change will impact river flow in the Brahmaputra.. Read More

Ensuring Water Security in Rural Areas of Bangladesh under Climate Change and Non-climatic Drivers of Change

This chapter addresses the question of security1 and sustainability2 of water resource management (WRM) in Bangladesh due to climate change and complex social and political factors including weak governance. It suggests that social networks should play an important role in ensuring security at the micro levels, and the promotion of people-centred water management. Bangladesh, a.. Read More

Lessons of climate change, stories of solutions

While there is little dissent in the scientific community that climate change directly correlates to human-caused greenhouse-gas emissions, action to reduce those emissions has not followed from the United States and many other governments around the world. Meanwhile, climate changes are already underway, and will continue to some degree even if emissions are drastically curtailed,.. Read More

Cities and greenhouse gas emissions: moving forward

Cities are blamed for the majority of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. So too are more affluent, highly urbanized countries. If all production- and consumption-based emissions that result from lifestyle and purchasing habits are included, urban residents and their associated affluence likely account for more than 80 per cent of the world’s GHG emissions. Attribution of.. Read More
