A study based on an extensive literature review and a survey of operators in the labor-intensive ready-made garment industry in Bangladesh examined the impact of an organization’s ethical climate on employees’ intention to leave. It showed that as the ethical climate of an organization improves, the intention to leave declines and the more likely employees.. Read More

Effect of Ganges River Morphological Dynamics and Farakka Barrage on Upward Migration and Catch of Indian Shad (Tenualosa Ilisha) in Bangladesh

Tenualosa ilisha, the largest and single most valuable shery, considered as the ag-ship species of Bangladesh, also commonly known as Indian Shad in South-East-Asia, is now becoming a threatened species due to human intervention and climatic factors. This study is aimed to assess the impact of the Farakka barrage and the Ganges River morphological dynamics.. Read More


Reasons for non-compliance with cyclone evacuation orders in Bangladesh

Despite significant improvement in cyclone early warning systems and emergency evacuation procedures in Bangladesh, a considerable number of potential victims do not evacuate. This paper, based on secondary published sources and administrative data, explores evacuation behavior during cyclones in Bangladesh and why people do not evacuate (move to cyclone shelters or safer places) despite early..

Role of Roadside Plantation on Climate Change Mitigation Through Carbon Sequestration of Dhaka Northern City

Diversified vegetation either naturally grown or planted support the ecosystem in which roads are constructed anthropogenicaly and perform an essential role in carbon sequestration as well as climate change mitigation. An importance has been taken by plantation REDD+ strategies as enlarging carbon sequestration. Present study was conducted in 2015 for monitoring plant diversity and their.. Read More

Seasonal Trend Analysis of Climatic Parameters Relation to Impacts on the Crop Productivity of the Major Crops in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, climate change is a major concern because of its geophysical location and climate dependent agriculture. As sessile organisms, crops plants have to face difficulties often in this environmentally vulnerable country. Therefore, this study examines the seasonal trend of two climatic parameters viz. temperature (maximum and minimum) and rainfall over a period of 1983.. Read More


Understanding Climate Adaptation Cultures in Global Context: Proposal for an Explanatory Framework

This paper aims at enhancing the previously formulated culture-theoretical explanation of risk-related perception and action with ecological and institutional connectedness. This is needed for global comparison of adaptation cultures as well as transferability of local knowledge. Differences in climate-related patterns of knowledge will therefore be explained by common patterns of socially shared knowledge in relation.. Read More

Carbon Stock Quantification and Tree Diversity Assessment of Homegardens in Rangpur District

Homegarden systems are suggested to hold a large potential for carbon (C) sequestration, especially for climate change mitigation and adaptation under changing environment. This is due to their multifunctional ecosystem services while decreasing pressure on natural forests and hence saving and storing carbon. In this research total above and bellow ground carbon stock, tree species.. Read More
