Modelling the impact of future socio-economic and climate change scenarios on river microbial water quality

Microbial surface water quality is important, as it is related to health risk when the population is exposed through drinking, recreation or consumption of irrigated vegetables. The microbial surface water quality is expected to change with socio-economic development and climate change. This study explores the combined impacts of future socio-economic and climate change scenarios on.. Read More

Future changes in water requirements of Boro rice in the face of climate change in North-West Bangladesh

Understanding future changes in crop water requirements and irrigation demand in the context of climate change is essential for long-term water resources management and agricultural planning. This study investigates the impacts of climate change on future water requirements of dry season Boro rice. Climate scenarios for four North-West districts of Bangladesh were constructed from the outputs of.. Read More

Gender, Climate Change, and Storm Surge Risk Communication

This report examines gender dimension of extreme weather events and other climate impacts. It also explores the potential for greater inclusion of women’s voices in climate action and disaster risk management. The first half of this report consists of a review of scholarly and professional literature on gender and climate change, focusing primarily on what.. Read More

Monitoring the spatiotemporal dynamics of waterlogged area in southwestern Bangladesh using time series Landsat imagery

Waterlogging is becoming a major environmental problem and challenge for socio-economic development in the southwestern part of Bangladesh. In this study, the Satkhira district was selected as the study area to quantify waterlogging area delineation. To portray these dynamics, Landsat imageries from 1973, 1989, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015 were used. A training dataset.. Read More

Disaster management in Bangladesh: What women need

  • 2017

UN Women Bangladesh and ACDI/VOCA brought together 50 women leaders from around the south-west of Bangladesh to further understand the challenges and opportunities of rural women in severely climate-affected areas of the country. This report reflects the discussions and concerns of women leaders in resilience, disaster preparedness, and climate change, and gives key recommendations for.. Read More

Mangroves as Protection from Storm Surges in Bangladesh

This paper evaluates the protective capacity of mangrove forests against storm surge in seven coastal locations of Bangladesh, where surge heights can range from 1.5 to 9 meters. Estimates confirm varying levels of protection from different species, width, and density of mangrove forests. The findings highlight that mangroves must be used along with built infrastructure..

Climate projections and extremes in dynamically downscaled CMIP5 model outputs over the Bengal delta: a quartile based bias-correction approach with new gridded data

In the era of global warning, the insight of future climate and their changing extremes is critical for climate-vulnerable regions of the world. In this study, we have conducted a robust assessment of Regional Climate Model (RCM) results in a monsoon-dominated region within the new Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) and the latest..

Strategies and Barriers to Adaptation of Hazard-Prone Rural Households in Bangladesh

The global farming communities have already experienced the impact of climate change in a range of ways and made their adaptation decision. Adaptation is, however, context-specific and varies across and within countries, which warrants location specific research. This chapter presents the strategies and barriers to adaptation of hazards-prone rural households in developing countries using Bangladesh.. Read More
