Bangladesh Climate Change Impacts and Vulnerability World to climate change impacts (McCarthy et al., 2001)

The specific objective of the study was to prepare a synthesis for the general readership on climate change issues for Bangladesh. The modality of achieving this objective is to take note of all the important findings in published literature and put it in a form so that the product helps the readership to clearly understand the dynamics of climate change and relate it within the contexts of various relevant sectoral development. It is expected that the publication will help create awareness among the stakeholders and in near future, lead to an ‘informed decision making’ while considering development decisions in vulnerable areas and/or sectors. The synthesis is, therefore, envisaged as a tool to mainstream adaptation to climate change in Bangladesh, in order to achieve the goals and targets of Bangladesh’s Initial National Communication1 (MOEF, 2002) and the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA2) process.
