Environmental Compliance Opportunities in the Bangladeshi Ready Made Garments Industry: Lessons from the green high achievers

Bangladesh’s Ready-Made Garments (RMG) industry remains the backbone of its industrial growth in the coming decades. This paper sought to examine its environmental compliance landscape in terms of the incentives and barriers RMG entrepreneurs face. The paper in particular looked at the high achievers in greening, which includes some of the factories who have the.. Read More

Autonomy in Building Process to Adapt the Climate Change Impacts: A Study of the Coastal Settlements in Bangladesh

Abstract. Geographically located in the deltaic region, Bangladesh is an ideal breeding ground for natural disasters. Climate change has also induced significant impacts on Bangladesh, particularly for the coastal settlements, which face natural disasters of one kind or another almost every year. Alongside the huge loss of life and destruction of human settlements, different built-environmental,.. Read More


Agricultural livelihoods in coastal Bangladesh under climate and environmental change – a model framework†

Coastal Bangladesh experiences significant poverty and hazards today and is highly vulnerable to climate and environmental change over the coming decades. Coastal stakeholders are demanding information to assist in the decision making processes, including simulation models to explore how different interventions, under different plausible future socio-economic and environmental scenarios, could alleviate environmental risks and promote..

Climate induced changes of precipitation extremes over Bangladesh

Due to its geographic location and dense population, Bangladesh has been considered as one of the most vulnerable to countries considering climate change. Changes of frequency, duration and intensity of climate extremes will significantly impact human society, water resources, and ecosystems of the country. An attempt has been made to investigate possible changes of extreme.. Read More


Carbon Trading and its Impact in Bangladesh

  • , et al.
  • 2019

With the start of industrial revolution in the middle of the 19 century, carbon dioxide emissions in th our atmosphere have increased steadily and dramatically. It has a dramatic impact on our climate, both warming our climate and altering our weather with more droughts and more very extreme weather events. To control the carbon emission.. Read More

Gender dimensions of differential health effects of climate change induced water-logging: A case study from coastal Bangladesh

It is generally recognized that Bangladesh is likely to become one of the worst victims of climate change.Most of the adverse effects of climate change is anticipated to be in the form of extreme weather events, while water related hazards such as flood, drought, salinity ingress, river bank erosion, water logging, tidal bore are likely..

Climate change and coastal aquaculture farmers’ risk perceptions: experiences from Bangladesh and Denmark

  • .
  • 2019

This paper addresses the issue of risk perception in relation to climate change threats, comparison of risk perceptions in two different regions, and derives general results of what affect peoples’ level of risk perceptions. Revelation of individual risk perception is essential for local acceptance and cooperation. We do this by a comparative study with Bangladesh.. Read More

Hydro-meteorological trends in Southwest Coastal Bangladesh : perspectives of climate change and human interventions

The southwest coastal region of Bangladesh, being under tidal influence and dependent on sweet water supplies from upstream, has a unique brackish water ecosystem. The region, having vast low-lying areas enclosed by man-made polders, is considered to be highly vulnerable to climate change induced hazards. In this study, linear trends in hydro-climatic variables, such as.. Read More

Investigations of MODIS AOD and cloud properties with CERES sensor based net cloud radiative effect and a NOAA HYSPLIT Model over Bangladesh for the period 2001–2016

  • Ali, et al.
  • 2019

The present study investigates the spatiotemporal characteristics of aerosol optical depth (AOD), cloud properties, and TOA (Top Of Atmosphere) Net Cloud Radiative Effect (Net CRE) using MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) Terra and CERES (Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System) products over Bangladesh for the period 2001–2016. This study also explores the backward trajectory using a HYSPLIT (Hybrid Single.. Read More

In harm’s way: Climate security vulnerability in Asia

  • , et al.
  • 2018

Asian countries have among the highest numbers of people exposed to the impacts of climate-related hazards and, thus, at greatest risk of mass death. Floods, droughts, and storms have always tested civilian governments and international humanitarian aid agencies. However, climate change threatens to make the problem worse by increasing the intensity and possibly the frequency.. Read More
