Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management


Bangladesh bears the worst brunt of climate change even though its contribution to global climate change is negligible. The frequency and magnitude of different disasters have been on a increasing trend over the last few years, though disasters are not new to the country’s history. Therefore, people of this country are resilient, possess excellent coping capacity and time-tested knowledge on disaster management. People’s ability of spontaneous adaptation makes the country a model in global endeavour to climate change. Nevertheless, climate change has appeared as a major development challenge in recent times and is aggravating the situation to an irreversible state where food, water and income security are more vulnerable than ever before. The Unit articulates its research agenda on the basis of the country’s right to growth and international actions based on common but differentiated responsibility, because Bangladesh is one of the worst victims of climate change. The organisation continues to conduct research ranging from climate change science to adaptation to mitigation and contribute at national and international levels to ensure fairness and equity
