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

Asian journal of science and technology


Bangladesh is likely to be one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to climate change. This paper discusses the possible impacts of climate change in coastal zone of Bangladesh through tropical cyclones, storm surges, coastal erosion and sea level rise. The possible increase in cyclone frequency in the Bay of Bengal, lying south.. Read More

Disaster Risk Reduction Including Climate Change Adaptation Over South Asia: Challenges and Ways Forward

Abstract South Asia is vulnerable to a variety of hydrometeorological hazards, which are often cross-boundary in nature. Climate change is expected to influence many of these hazards. Thus, climate-related risks over South Asia make disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) key policy goals. Recently there is an increasing consensus that DRR including..

The Sundarban Delta Complex

Abstract The Sundarban (89°02′ to 89°55′ E and 21°30′ to 22°30′ N) is situated on the prograding, vulnerable megadelta formed by the transboundary Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna (GBM) river network. Shared by southern Bangladesh and southern part of West Bengal state, India, this is the largest single block of tidal halophytic mangrove forest in the world. The.. Read More

Photo Essay: “Wave”

Abstract: As one of the major victims of anthropogenic climate change, Bangladesh is experiencing variable climatic conditions. Bangladesh is a small, yet overpopulated country in Southeast Asia with a largely agro-based economy. Climatic hazards like cyclone, flood, drought, soil salinity and river erosion are more frequent today. Due to prolonged droughts the temperature is increasing.. Read More
