Combined deficit irrigation and soil fertility management on different soil textures to improve wheat yield in drought-prone Bangladesh

Proper utilization of water resources is very important in agro-based and drought-prone Bangladesh. Sustainable use of water resources in agriculture requires irrigation schedules based on local environmental conditions, soil type and water availability. In this study, the water productivity model AquaCrop was used to simulate different water and fertilizer management strategies in a drought prone.. Read More

Simulating Nitrogen and Irrigation Effects on Wheat Production in Bangladesh under Changing Climate

  • Sen, et al.
  • 2017

Climate change impacts are visible in Bangladesh which requires adoption of judicious crop management practices for sustainable agriculture. Crop simulation models are effective in this regard and can be used for optimizing water and nitrogen inputs for maximization of wheat yields. Two field studies were conducted at Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) for evaluating the.. Read More

Climate change skepticism and index versus standard crop insurance demand in coastal Bangladesh

This paper investigates if climate change skepticism, farmers’ fatalistic beliefs, and insurance plan design influence interest in crop weather insurance. While studies of the influence of fatalism on disaster preparedness are common, the ways in which fatalism influences climate change skepticism, and in turn affects farmers’ interest in crop insurance, have not been previously investigated… Read More

Impacts of Bangabandhu Jamuna Multi-purpose Bridge on the dynamics of bar morphology at the Jamuna River in Bangladesh

This research paper evaluates the impacts of Bangabandhu Jamuna Multi-purpose Bridge on the dynamics of bar morphology of Jamuna River. A reach of 35 km upstream to 35 km downstream in a width of 25 km (total 1750 km2) considered to assess the impacts of the bridge. Time-series satellite images were used to examine the bar development of the.. Read More


A Climate Migrant’s Story from an Urban Slum in Dhaka

Non-economic loss and damage (NELD) — which refers to the adverse consequences (avoidable, non-avoidable, or non-adaptable) of climatic stress on items that are not traded in markets — has been an important part of the climate change agenda. Although these consequences are not measured in financial terms, they have a strong meaning for people having to deal with.. Read More

Strategy Formulation and Adaptation Pathways Generation for Sustainable Development of Western Floodplain of Ganges

The coastal zone of Bangladesh is very heterogeneous in nature and has marvelous potential to create opportunities of national importance and contribute to GDP. Among the potentials—intensification of agriculture, aqua-culture and marine fishery, ship building industry, eco-tourism, deep sea port etc. are most significant. Unfortunately, the coastal zone of the country is disaster prone area… Read More


Transforming organic prawn farming in Bangladesh: potentials and challenges

Although giant freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii de Man) farming is widely practiced in southwest Bangladesh due to favorable biophysical resources and agro-climatic conditions, organic prawn culture has not yet taken off. However, the culture of wild prawn postlarvae and the use of snail meat and farm-made feeds with cow dung in many respects are considered.. Read More

Are Protected Forests of Bangladesh Prepared for the Implementation of REDD+? A Forest Governance Analysis from Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary

The present study investigates the forest governance structure for REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) implementation in a protected forest of Bangladesh, namely Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary (RKWS). The study analyses the key aspects of forest governance, focusing on drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, governance deficit, institutions and social networks, co-benefits, and opportunities..

Mangrove management for climate change adaptation and sustainable development in coastal zones

Due to their prevalence in developing countries and the range of ecosystem services they provide, projects aimed at promoting mangroves align with several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals—specifically Goals 13, 14, and 15—which concern adaptation to climate change and the sustainablemanagement of forest and coastal resources. Although mangroves themselves are sensitive to climatechange, they also provide services that would help reduce damages, by sequestering carbon,.. Read More

Evaluation of Aus Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Production in Less Irrigated Situation in Northern Region of Bangladesh

ewline”> Twenty one demonstrations and two validation trials were carried out at the farmers’ field in the northern region of Bangladesh during 201 4 using Aus rice: variety BRRI dhan48 to enhance Aus (pre-monsoon) rice cultivation. Grain yields of 3.5 to 6.5 t ha-1 were obtained from demonstrations plots conducted in different farmers’ field. The.. Read More
