Climate change is a global phenomenon being experienced by all levels of society, and in different types of ecosystems. It can have adverse impact on food security, water supply, and livelihood among others, especially for the poor and more vulnerable sections of human society.

This book explores theoretical frameworks, adaptation strategies and local knowledge and provides an overall state of climate change research and up-to-date knowledge of climate change issues in the context of Bangladesh. It aims to provide insights, lessons and perspectives on how Bangladesh is dealing with the impact of climate change by drawing on the experiences and lessons shared by representatives from research centres, development agencies and academic institutions. It also takes into account the crosscutting issues contributed by natural and social scientists and other experts in the field.

This book is invaluable to all interested in assessing research gaps in climate change studies in the context of Bangladesh and other parts of South Asia, identifying future research areas, drafting effective policy agenda and implementing critical activities at the local, national, and international levels.
