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

IMPROVED ADAPTIVE CAPACITY TO CLIMATE CHANGE FOR SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS IN THE AGRICULTURAL SECTORS – THE CASE OF THE HIGH BARIND TRACT : FINAL SYNTHESIS REPORT

  • , 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

Dynamics of the Sundarbans Mangroves in Bangladesh Under Climate Change

Mangroves provide a range of ecosystem services ranging from mitigation of global climate change by carbon capture to the sustenance of local communities whose livelihood depends upon mangrove forest products. A hybrid model is used to analyse and project the spatial distribution of mangrove species assemblages with results showing that the distribution will alter substantially.. Read More

Non-economic losses from climate change: opportunities for policy-oriented research

The concept of non-economic losses (NELs) has recently emerged in the context of negotiations on loss and damage under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). NELs are losses of values that are not commonly traded in markets but bear high relevance for those affected. Examples include loss of life, biodiversity and cultural.. Read More
