Participatory dynamic modelling approach for adaptation planning needs focusing on Small Islands Developing States

This paper presents an ongoing research towards a systems modelling framework to support ecosystem-based climate change adaptation (CCA) planning and decision making for small island developing states (SIDS), employing a structured process, coupling two approaches; Bayesian Networks (BNs) and System Dynamics (SD). The development of successful CCA adaptation plans requires a structured risk assessment process.. Read More

Tillage and residue management for sustaining rice-wheat cropping system in Indo-Gangetic Plains- A review

The rice-wheat cropping system occupying 13.5 million ha is important to meet the challenge of food security in the Indo-Gangetic Plains. The consequences of current production practices viz., degraded soil health, high cost of cultivation, inefficient use of resources and environment raises the danger to its sustainability. In the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of South Asia,.. Read More

A Comparative Case of the Implications of Various Approaches to Climate Change Adaptation in Bangladesh, India, South Africa, and Zimbabwe

This article is a synthesis of literature on cross-country experiences on the strategies for adapting to climate change in Southeast Asia (Bangladesh and India) and Southern Africa (South Africa and Zimbabwe). The article shows that each selected country employs unique measures for adapting to climate change. In Bangladesh the specific strategies for adapting to climate.. Read More

Flood and Sustainable Agriculture in the Haor Basin of Bangladesh: A Review Paper

The paper provides a deep insight into the agricultural practices and cropping pattern in Haor basin. Boro-Fallow-Fallow is the dominant cropping pattern in entire Haor basin. The paper also examines the characteristics of flood and its effects on agricultural production. It is found that flash flood severely destroy standing boro rice just before harvesting almost..

Beyond the tradition: Using Fuzzy Cognitive Maps to elicit expert views on coastal susceptibility to erosion in Bangladesh

This paper portrays the application of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCMs) to elicit expert views on current condition and future scenario of coastal susceptibility to erosion in Bangladesh. The geomorphological characteristic of the coastal area is highly dynamic where land erosion and accretion with different rates are constant phenomena. This research focuses on three coastal zones:..

Climate change may force 200,000 people in Bangladesh to migrate

Worsening weather conditions are driving farmers in Bangladesh out of their homes. Nearly 200,000 coastal residents will be forced to migrate to inland areas to find alternative livelihoods, according to a recent study. This will be caused by increased inundation and saline contamination of the soil, hitting crop production and incomes, said the study by Valerie Mueller,.. Read More


  • , et al.
  • 1970

In Bangladesh the High Barind Tract (HBT) of north-west Rajshahi division is different from other parts of the country due to its undulating topography having compact and low fertile soils. The region experienced high temperature with limited soil moisture storage along with low and erratic rainfall. Moreover no river/water bodies are present within the HBT… Read More
