Risks of climate change, operation and management on climate resilient water supply options in the coastal areas of Bangladesh

Abstract The coastal areas of Bangladesh are regarded as the most vulnerable region in the country due to climate change impact. Majority of the coastal population depend on water supply from rainwater harvesting (RWH) systems, pond sand filters (PSF) and rain-feed ponds. These water supply options are considered as climate resilience water supply options; however.. Read More

SOIL AND WATER SALINITY, THEIR MANAGEMENT IN RELATION TO CLIMATE CHANGES IN COASTAL AREAS OF BANGLADESH

Abstract: Climate change due to global warming and its negative consequence on environment and agro ecosystem is a serious concern of global community of current age. To assess the present soil and water salinity status in coastal areas a soil survey work following standard methods has been completed by Soil Resource Development Institute (SRDI) in.. Read More

Determinants of household fuelwood collection from mangrove plantations in coastal Bangladesh

  • 2018

The Government of Bangladesh has been establishing mangrove plantations since 1960. This study analyzes results from a household survey across eight coastal villages to investigate how local rural communities utilize these resources. The predominant direct use by households is the extraction of combustible fuel. Econometric results suggest that determinants of the household decision to collect fuelwood include respondent occupation and village. Farmers are less likely to extract mangrove fuels due to.. Read More

Impact of Extreme Weather Events on Injury, Disability, and Death in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is one of the countries most affected by natural disasters. While there is increasing evidence on the trends and impacts of climate change, both globally and in Bangladesh, there is limited quantitative analysis on the impacts of natural disasters on population health and the association with socioeconomic characteristics. Methods: We used a cross-sectional nationally.. Read More

Mapping of climate vulnerability of the coastal region of Bangladesh using principal component analysis

A B S T R A C T The coastal region of Bangladesh is highly vulnerable due to its low adaptive capacity, dense population, flat topography and exposure to various natural disasters such as cyclone, storm surges, sea level rise, tidal floods, bank erosion etc. In addition to present vulnerability, climate change will bring detrimental..

Risk assessment based on fuzzy synthetic evaluation method

a b s t r a c t The IPCC fifth assessment report envisions risk of climate-related impacts as an outcome of the interaction of climate-related hazards with the vulnerability and the exposure of human and natural systems. This approach relies heavily on human perception, via expert opinions. As experts decide appropriate placement of an.. Read More

CULTURAL APPROPRIATENESS OF POST SIDR HOUSING RECONSTRUCTION A CASE OF SHARANKHOLA, BAGERHAT

Abstract Bangladesh is one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. Among the natural hazards cyclones and the associated storm surges are considered as the major threat to our 710km coastal belt with around 28 million people living within the risk zone. One of the major impacts of cyclone and storm surge is.. Read More

Climate Change Impact on Agriculture and Food Sufficiency in the Southern Coastal Regions of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a disaster prone country where cyclone occurs more frequently under ongoing climate change conditions. For this study, severe cyclone events from 1975-2014 have been analyzed considering temperature, relative humidity, sea level pressure, rainfall, and daily sunshine hours data to find out the whole atmospheric variability behind extreme weather phenomena cyclone. Meteorological and cyclone.. Read More

Nitrous oxide and nitric oxide emissions from lowland rice cultivation with urea deep placement and alternate wetting and drying irrigation

Abstract Urea deep placement (UDP) and the alternate wetting and drying (AWD) irrigation method are two promising rice production technologies. However, studies on the impact of UDP under AWD irrigation on nitrous oxide (N2O) and nitric oxide (NO) emissions are limited. In this study, the effects of UDP with AWD irrigation on these emissions, nitrogen.. Read More
