    Talk on Vulnerability of Coastal Areas in a Changing Climate: evidence from Bangladesh

    Venue : TERI School of Advanced Studies
    Date : 11 December 2018

    Summary

    About the Lecture: Worldwide, densely populated coastal areas continue to grow in both, numbers of people and levels of economic activity. Yet, climate change directly threatens the lives and livelihoods of inhabitants of low-lying coastal regions. The impacts of sea-level rise, increasing soil and water salinity, intensified storm surges and urban flooding from extreme rainfall risks are already damaging, and will continue to grow in the coming decades. Bangladesh is an extremely useful case study for identifying and measuring these worldwide threats as the families in Bangladesh are already on the "front line" of climate change and how families in Bangladesh adapt foretells future decisions by hundreds of millions of families worldwide that will face similar threats by 2100. In this presentation, seven years of multidisciplinary research on climate change impacts, livelihood threats, and adaptation possibilities for the inhabitants of coastal Bangladesh will be summarized.
