Implications for workability and survivability in populations exposed to extreme heat under climate change: a modelling study

  • PhD, et al.
  • 2018

Background Changes in temperature and humidity due to climate change affect living and working conditions. An understanding of the effects of different global temperature changes on population health is needed to inform the continued implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement and to increase global ambitions for greater cuts in emissions. By use of historical and projected climate.. Read More

Climatic Impacts and Responses of Migratory and Non-Migratory Fishers of the Padma River, Bangladesh

Abstract: This study empirically assesses the impacts of climatic events on the inland fishers (i.e., migratory and non-migratory) in Bangladesh and explores their responses to those events. Here, the migratory refers to the fishers who change their fishing location seasonally and voluntarily, whereas the non-migratory fishers fish in the same area. It is assumed that.. Read More

Enhanced Climate Action in Response to 1.5°C of Global Warming

  • , et al.
  • 2018

Scaling up NDCs by 2020 is a humanitarian, human rights, development and justice imperative in order to respond to the risks of 1.5°C of global warming, which are presented in the IPCC Special Report “Global Warming of 1.5°C” and other scientific studies. ACT Alliance, building on these scientific findings, calls on states to take fast.. Read More

Renewable Energy Practices in Bangladesh

Abstract Despite the recent success of increasing the electricity generation, Bangladesh faces a problem in expanding the grid network to the rural areas because of the high transmission and distributional costs of providing grid connections in those areas and infrastructural bottlenecks. Renewable energy technologies (RETs) appears to be one of the most efficient and smart.. Read More


Vulnerability and Response to Cyclones in Coastal Bangladesh

Abstract We explore the vulnerability to cyclones of different socio-economic groups and their individual and collective responses to cyclone-related disasters through case studies of two villages in southwest coastal Bangladesh. We take a political ecology perspective, drawing on the widely-used Pressure and Release (PAR) Model to structure our analysis of the physical exposure of the.. Read More

The Influence of Gender Relations on Women’s Involvement and Experience in Climate Change Adaptation Programs in Bangladesh

Abstract The nexus between poverty and climate change is a major concern, especially in a country like Bangladesh where lack of resources is a significant problem in both rural and urban areas. Climate change affects a wide demographic of the population in Bangladesh, and among those affected, women are more vulnerable to climate change impacts,.. Read More

Long-term hydraulic adjustment of three tropical moist forest tree species to changing climate

Xylem hydraulic adjustment to global climate changes was reported from temperate, boreal and Mediterranean tree species. Yet, the long-term hydraulic adjustment in tropical trees have not been studied so far. Here we developed the first standard chronologies of three hydraulic trait variables for three South Asian moist forest trees to analyze their long term hydraulic.. Read More

Nuclear Power Plant: Significance for the Betterment of the Present Power Scenario in Bangladesh and Possible Solution for the Future

Becoming concerned about nuclear power plant in Bangladesh, this paper documents the importance and future scopes for the effective energy solution provided by nuclear power plant in the context of power scenario in Bangladesh. In modern life Electricity is the most significant and essential element. The development of a country depends on electricity generation and.. Read More


How will Bangladesh be affected by climate change?

While many impacts of climate change are already evident around the world, the worse is still to come. Having a clear picture of future risks is essential to spur action now on a scale that matches the problem. The World Bank has prepared the following infographic to communicate the risks for one of the world’s.. Read More

Climate Change and Rural to Urban Forced Migration in Coastal Regions of Bangladesh: Need for Adaptive Social Protection as a Strategy

Abstract Climate change will exacerbate many of the current problems and natural hazards the country faces. In recent years, general cyclonic activity in the Bay of Bengal has become more frequent. This is expected to result in higher wind speeds and storm surges leading to more damage in the coastal region. In the Ganges- Brahmaputra-Meghna system, including.. Read More
