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

Livelihood exposure to climatic stresses in the north-eastern floodplains of Bangladesh

  • , et al.
  • 2018

In this paper, we seek to better understand the temporal and spatial aspects of climatic stress on local resource production systems and resource-use behaviors by including the perspectives of resource-dependent communities. Field research was conducted over a nine-month period in the remote north-eastern floodplain communities of Bangladesh, considered one of the most climate-vulnerable, least developed.. Read More

Rapid migrations and dynamics of citizen response

  • .
  • 2018

One of the pressing social concerns of our time is the need for meaningful responses to migrants and refugees fleeing conflict and environmental catastrophe. We model the influx of migrants into a city, varying the rates of entry, and find a non-linear inverse relationship between the fraction of resident population whose tolerance levels are breached..

Tipping points in adaptation to urban flooding under climate change and urban growth: The case of the Dhaka megacity

Envisioning the future city as the outcome of planned development, several master and strategic plans for Dhaka were prepared. However, these plans, do not adequately address the well-known and combined effects of climate change and unplanned urbanization on urban flooding. Additionally, the spatial planning component is missing in adaptation planning, which broadly concentrates on the.. Read More

Effect of plastic mulch on crop yield and land degradation in south coastal saline soils of Bangladesh

The experiment was conducted during dry season of 2016 and 2017 at farmer’s field of Kalapara Upazila of Patuakhali district, Bangladesh to develop tools to reduce salinity impact in maize and to reduce salinity induced land degradation. There were five treatments in the experiment having three different color plastic mulch (blue, black and white) and rice straw mulch and a non mulch.. Read More
