I am quite late in start reading this one, but better then never. Its been written in an exceptionally basic way and is particularly merely soon after i finished reading.

  The book] could not be more timely. The book puts the problems of climate change in an increasingly interconnected and increasingly environmentally riven Bangladesh into useful and illuminating context. It brings together history, geography, government, and with no small amount of passion. * AAG Review of Books * Harun Rashid and Bimal Paul 3/5(1).   Sitting in Bangladesh, where the impacts of human-induced global warming are already present, it sometimes feels incomprehensible how the countries responsible for the majority of emissions have failed to take the issue seriously enough and do anything substantial to reduce emissions. The Paris Agreement where all countries finally agreed to take action was a significant positive.

Bangladesh is by no means a high emitter of carbon, but it is nevertheless one of the countries most critically affected. There is a significant risk of damage to lives and livelihoods due to climate change in the form of cyclones, flooding and storm surges, and slow-onset impacts such as droughts, sea level rises and river basin erosion.   Bangladesh is highly susceptible to climate change. Floods, cyclones and droughts are likely to increase as the Earth warms. Poor farmers are already trying.

Urban areas: Cities and Towns situated along the Coastal belt in Bangladesh are at the Front line of Climate Change related Disaster impacts and could experience a severe damage.

Bangladesh is one of the countries most likely to suffer adverse impacts from anthropogenic climate s include sea level rise (approximately a fifth of the country consists of low-lying coastal zones within 1 meter of the high water mark), droughts, floods, and cyclones (approximatelypeople were killed in the cyclone of April ).Cited by: The study brings together existing evidence on the Chimate change and Bangladesh book change, environment and migration nexus in Bangladesh.

The evidence in the document comes from a wide variety of sources and studies, including Government of Bangladesh statistics and policy documents, academic research, working papers and other publications and research carried out by national, bilateral and multilateral organizations.

“This book from Md Aboul Fazal Younus focuses on climate change vulnerability and adaptation. The book is recommended for practitioners and researchers on climate change, with a particular focus on vulnerability and adaptation but it will also interest practitioners and policy-makers engaged in developing the plans and programmes at regional and national level.

Due to its vulnerability to a wide variety of climate change impacts, Bangladesh has become a laboratory for adaptation and resilience strategies in the developing world.

The knowledge shared by experienced practitioners who have a deep understanding of the complex context of this country is an invaluable resource.

Climate change is a “wicked problem,” Marshall writes, a complicated challenge with no clear enemy and no silver-bullet solution. To tackle this problem and mobilize action, “Don’t Even Think About It” argues we need science, but just as importantly, we need emotional, compelling narratives.

The primary target groups for this book are students and researchers in the fields of environment, disaster risk reduction, and climate change studies. The book will provide them with a good idea of the current trend of research in the field and will furnish basic knowledge on this important topic in Bangladesh.

Book Description. Bangladesh is by no means a high emitter of carbon, but it is nevertheless one of the countries most critically affected. There is a significant risk of damage to lives and livelihoods due to climate change in the form of cyclones, flooding and storm surges, and slow-onset impacts such as droughts, sea level rises and river basin erosion.

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.The book outlines the climate change adaptation (CCA) actions in Bangladesh drawing examples and lessons from different projects and programs in the country.
