Due to its geographic location and dense population, Bangladesh has been considered as one of the most vulnerable to countries considering climate change. Changes of frequency, duration and intensity of climate extremes will significantly impact human society, water resources, and ecosystems of the country. An attempt has been made to investigate possible changes of extreme events for Bangladesh considering global warming. This study quantifies changes by the results from high resolution regional climate model, PRECIS, developed by Met office, UK under moderate emission scenarios A1B for three 30-year time slices in the 21st century. It has been found that changes in daily precipitation and the precipitation extremes during monsoon (June to September) season are increasing than dry season (December to February). Under A1B scenarios, intensity of heavy precipitation and frequency of the events will be increasing while number of wet days will be decreasing towards the end of 21st century.
