Environmental and Health Hazard of Herbicides used in Asian Rice Farming: A Review

Lots of work have been done on herbicide use and its impact on soil, environment and farmers health worldwide especially in Asia. But, very little or no attempt has so far been made to do research on this topic in Bangladesh context. In Bangladesh, herbicide use is not quite an old practice rather a new.. Read More

Municipal solid waste to energy generation: An approach for enhancing climate co-benefits in the urban areas of Bangladesh

Ever-growing scarcity of land resources around the world brands the waste to energy (WtE) strategy as a promising option for municipal solid waste (MSW) management. WtE conversion not only reduce the land pressure problem in urban areas, but also generate electricity and heat to supply to the surrounding urban areas. Moreover it also warrants climate..

Hydrodynamic and Morphological Impact of Hydraulic Structural Interventions: An Investigative Case Study on Feni-Muhuri River System of Bangladesh

This paper offers an analysis on Muhuri River in terms of change in velocity, water level, scouring depth at different locations, thalweg shifting and afflux due to construction of structural intervention on Feni-Muhuri river system. Primarily, Gumbel’s distribution approach was adopted for fixation of the flood frequency analysis in terms of 25, 50 and 100.. Read More

Narrative as a Method for Eliciting Tacit Knowledge of Climate Variability in Bangladesh

Climate change adaptation has increasingly come to be conceptualised as a place-based social process, in large part mediated by the local cultural context. The specificity of adaptation has called for partnerships between scientific and local communities to co-produce knowledge of climate variability (weather) and longer-term climate change. However, this raises numerous methodological challenges, including how.. Read More

Economics of biogas plants and solar home systems: For household energy applications

Electricity and clean cooking fuels are the two basic ingredients that are indispensable to alleviate energy poverty and bring about human development, but still today, globally, more than one billion people do not have access to these two forms of energy. The major reasons for the lack of these two energy services are economic constraints… Read More

Microfinance and climate change adaptation: insights from Bangladesh

Climate change is one of the biggest environmental problems facing humanity, particularly for developing countries which are highly vulnerable to environmental and climate hazards. If citizens of these countries are to adapt there must be sufficient incentives, knowledge, resources, skills, and an absence of market failures and barriers that discourage adaptation. Growing interest exists in.. Read More

Calibration and Validation of Decision Support System for Agro-Technology Transfer Model for Simulating Growth and Yield of Maize in Bangladesh

Maize is an emerging important crop in Bangladesh because of its high yield potential and economic profitability compared to rice and wheat crops. There is a need to understand the growth and yield behavior of this crop in varying production environments of Bangladesh. Crop model such as Decision Support System For Agro-technology Transfer (DSSAT) version.. Read More

Climate change perceptions and local adaptation strategies of hazard-prone rural households in Bangladesh

Adaptation is a key strategy that can alleviate the severity of climate change impacts on agriculture and food production. Adaptation strategies are unlikely to be effective without an understanding of the farmers’ perceptions of climate change. This paper explores the local knowledge of adaptation in response to the perceived impacts of climate change and climatic.. Read More
