ABSTRACT

Bangladesh is a country of disasters, mostly triggered by the hydro-meteorological hazards, with climate change directly influencing their intensity and frequency. In the recent years lightning incidents are becoming more frequent and claiming more lives than the past. This research is a systematic effort to understand the characteristics and vulnerabilities of lightning hazards based on observation during March to September 2018. The main objective of this study is to increase the understanding of lightning hazard and disaster in the context of Bangladesh and support risk reduction initiatives for saving lives.
