ABSTRACT Human interference due to economic activities has an adverse impact on the ecosystem. The degree of influence depends on different socio-economic parameters and also contingent upon location. Bangladesh is a densely and developing country which covering 2.5 million hector coastal areas and supporting livelihood to 35 million people. Consequently, marine, estuarine and forest ecosystems..

Geospatial Monitoring of Land Surface Temperature Effects on Vegetation Dynamics in the Southeastern Region of Bangladesh from 2001 to 2016

Abstract Land surface temperature (LST) can significantly alter seasonal vegetation phenology which in turn affects the global and regional energy balance. These are the most important parameters of surface–atmosphere interactions and climate change. Methods for retrieving LSTs from satellite remote-sensing data are beneficial for modeling hydrological, ecological, agricultural and meteorological processes on the Earth’s surface… Read More


Climate Change, Gender and Vulnerable Groups in Bangladesh

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY An increasing number of evidences in recent years have clearly established the fact that anthropogenic climate change is a reality. According to latest findings of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other concerned organizations/agencies, developing countries are expected to suffer the most from the negative impacts of climate change. This is.. Read More

Allometric relationships of stem volume and stand level carbon stocks at varying stand density in Swietenia macrophylla King plantations, Bangladesh

Abstract Estimation of biomass carbon per unit area of forests or woodlands is of great concern to ecologists and forest managers considering global climate change scenarios. In the framework of this study, we intend to develop allometric models to predict stem volume and stand level carbon stocks in monoculture mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla King) plantations. It was..

DNA fingerprinting at farm level maps rice biodiversity across Bangladesh and reveals regional varietal preferences

Abstract The development, dissemination, and adoption of improved rice varieties are imperative for global food and nutritional security. Knowledge of the crop’s distribution across agro-ecologies is important for impact assessment studies, varietal replacement strategies, and the development and implementation of agricultural policies. Bangladesh is the world’s 4th largest rice producer. Though traditional varieties (TVs) are abundant.. Read More

The Causal Relationship between Government Spending and Environmental Quality: The Case for Bangladesh

Abstract Government spending plays an important role in the development of a country. However, amidst such development, the environment is often overlooked, resulting in the deterioration of air quality and depletion of resources. Our study aims to investigate the possible relationship between government spending and environmental quality in Bangladesh over a period of 1976 –.. Read More


Natural hazards and internal migration: The role of transient versus permanent shocks

Abstract: We analyse internal migration triggered by natural disasters in Bangladesh. We conducted a survey in nine coastal districts and two major cities in Bangladesh to investigate whether floods and cyclones, which can be considered as transient shocks, affect interregional migration differently compared to riverbank erosion that causes loss of lands and thus generates shocks..

Impact of Climate Change on Soil Salinity: A Remote Sensing Based Investigation in Coastal Bangladesh

Abstract: Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries to sea level rise due to the climate change. Soil salinity is one of the potential threat to the coastal ecosystem and agriculture which might hinder the country’s future food security. Conventional field-based soil salinity monitoring over vast region may not be cost and time efficient… Read More

Analysis of stormwater runoff for a selected catchment of eastern Dhaka using hydrologic model

Abstract: Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh and one of the world’s rapidly growing megacities, faces the recurring phenomena of urban flooding and waterlogging following intense rainfall nearly every year. The water level of the Brahmaputra and rainfall and runoff from the entire Brahmaputra Basin mainly influence the process of river floods in and around the.. Read More
