A review of the environmental Kuznets curve hypothesis for deforestation policy in Bangladesh

Deforestation in the tropical developing countries is the critical environmental concern to ecologists and environmentalists. Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesis is critical to understanding the development path of a nation in relevance to its environment. The dictation of national economic growth to deforestation can be found through the study of EKC. To understand the EKC.. Read More

Cyclones in a Changing Climate: The Case of Bangladesh

This paper integrates information on climate change, hydrodynamic models, and geographic overlays to assess the vulnerability of coastal areas in Bangladesh to larger storm surges and sea-level rise by 2050. The approach identifies polders, coastal populations, settlements, infrastructure, and economic activity at risk of inundation, and estimates the damage versus the cost of several adaptation..

  • Lal, et al.
  • 2011

This book addresses an important topic of food security in South Asia with specific reference to climate change. Of the 1 billion food insecure people in the world, more than 30% are in South Asia. The problem of food insecurity may be exacerbated by the projected climate change especially because of the water scarcity caused.. Read More


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
