Future Climate Change and Moisture Stress: Impact on Crop Agriculture in South-Western Bangladesh

  • Roy, et al.
  • 2009

Scenario of Moisture Stress in soils and its effects on major crops in South-western region of Bangladesh (grid cell: 22.50N – 25.0N, 87.50E – 90.00ooE) has been assessed based on climate scenarios for two projection years 2030 and 2075 compared to the 1990 baseline. The climate scenarios were developed using an ensemble of 15 GCM.. Read More

Dwindling groundwater resources in northern India, from satellite gravity observations

[1] Northern India and its surroundings, home to roughly 600 million people, is probably the most heavily irrigated region in the world. Temporal changes in Earth’s gravity field in this region as recorded by the GRACE satellite mission, reveal a steady, large-scale mass loss that we attribute to excessive extraction of groundwater. Combining the GRACE.. Read More

Evaluation of management principles and performance of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) in Bangladesh

Experiments were conducted at irrigated and rainfed lowland rice sites in Bangladesh to assess the performance of management practices that have become known as the System of Rice Intensification (SRI). At a research station, SRI management principles such as seedling age, plant spacing, application of organic manure, seedling densities, duration of planting, planting shape and.. Read More

Climate volatility deepens poverty vulnerability in developing countries

Extreme climate events could influence poverty by affecting agricultural productivity and raising prices of staple foods that are important to poor households in developing countries. With the frequency and intensity of extreme climate events predicted to change in the future, informed policy design and analysis requires an understanding of which countries and groups are going..

Can picnic influence floral diversity and vitality of trees in Bhawal National Park of Bangladesh?

We examined the impact of picnic activities on forest diversity, structure, regeneration and vitality of tree species in the Bhawal National Park of Bangladesh. The study area was classified as a non-used, occasionally used and frequently used area on the basis of the intensity of the picnic activities. A total of 43 plant species were.. Read More

Planning for sustainable urbanisation in fast growing cities: Mitigation and adaptation issues addressed in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Issues related to sustainable urbanisation are best addressed when coordinated within a strategic framework and facilitated by a system of policy formulation that combines local opinions with scientific insights. This implies that planning for sustainable urbanisation has the potential to minimise climate change threats. While there is a pressing need for this potential to be.. Read More

Women’s vulnerability to water-related hazards: comparing three areas affected by climate change in Bangladesh

Various climate change-related events such as heatwaves, cold waves, flood, drought, sea-level rise (SLR), salinity intrusion and cyclones have both direct and indirect adverse impacts on human beings. This paper is primarily based on a study conducted to explore gender vulnerability at the community level due to water-related natural hazards (flood, drought and salinity intrusion).. Read More

Climate Change and Security in Bangladesh

This paper explores the potential impact of climate change on security and conflict in Bangladesh. The authors argue that as the relationship between climate change and security depends on a chain of consequences, climate change-induced environmental degradation can undermine livelihoods and thus reduce basic human security as competition intensifies. The authors provide recommendations and state.. Read More

Vulnerability of national economies to the impacts of climate change on fisheries

Anthropogenic global warming has significantly influenced physical and biological processes at global and regional scales. The observed and anticipated changes in global climate present significant opportunities and challenges for societies and economies. We compare the vulnerability of 132 national economies to potential climate change impacts on their capture fisheries using an indicator-based approach. Countries in.. Read More
