Abstract The agriculture of Bangladesh has been recognized as one of the most vulnerable sectors to the impacts of climate change due to its juxtaposing geographical position. This study examined the nexus between long-term (1960–2014) climate variables with the yield and area of major food crops in selected agro-ecosystems (Gazipur, Comilla, Jessore, and Dinajpur) of..

Future Projection of Meteorological Drought Characteristics over Bangladesh using Effective Drought Index (EDI)

Abstract Climate change increases the odds of worsening drought in many parts of the planet. Bangladesh is one of the most natural disaster-prone country, and particularly drought is the most complex but least understood of all natural hazards in Bangladesh. Therefore variability of the drought characteristics and its future change should be major threatening issues.. Read More

The art of exchanging weather stories

Abstract If children from different countries and cultures want to exchange ideas about weather and climate, then it may be a challenge. They cannot simply write to or Skype each other if they speak different languages. But they can create art for each other! Art transcends language, which opens up an exciting channel of communication… Read More

Assessment of Terrestrial Water Storage Recharge using GRACE data for Ganga-Brahmaputra River Basin

Abstract The Ganga-Brahmaputra river basin is one of the most fertile lands of the world. Majorly spreading over India with parts of it extending to China, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh, this river basin is home to 630 million people. Assessment of water availability in this river basin is crucial due to its strategic location, large.. Read More


Migration and adaptation under climate change in deltas

Abstract Delta environments in low and mid-latitudes are important contributors to global food security and provide home for more than 500 million people worldwide. These regions are however under pressure from multiple drivers: climate and environmental change experienced through sea-level rise, soil salinization and erosion, etc. and socioeconomic factors such as high population density and,..

Numerical model of 1771 Meiwa tsunami and influence of sea level rise on the inundation

  • Gal, et al.
  • 2018

Abstract Climate change impact on the Ryukyu Islands is often related to coral bleaching induced by warming waters. Beyond this aspect, a sea level rise is also expected as suggested by the IPCC AR5. This rise will impact the coasts and the inundation areas, and has already been studied in other parts of the world.. Read More


All that Is Solid Melts into the Bay

Bangladesh’s southern coastal region is home to the world’s largest delta, that of the Ganga, Meghna, and Brahmaputra rivers, that drains into the Bay of Bengal. The shaping of Khulna as a frontier of climate change adaptation is an active and ongoing process, involving both epistemic and material dynamics. The frontier dynamics in Khulna shed.. Read More

Initiating and sustaining action: Experiences building resilience to climate change in Asian cities

  • .
  • 2018

Across Asia, and more widely, significant investment is being made by donor organisations to catalyse awareness about climate change impacts in dynamic urban environments. This investment has initiated processes that enable cities to adapt and become more resilient, thereby reducing risk to rapidly growing urban populations – notably those that are most vulnerable or marginalised… Read More
