Climate Change and Flow of Environmental Displacement in Bangladesh | Unnayan Onneshan

This paper examines environmental displacement as an impact of climate change in Bangladesh. Despite the government’s initiatives to respond to the effects of climate change, it is stressed that there is still a lack of coordination amongst the concerned bodies to operationalise its policy and action plans. There are also contradictions on how to address environmentally displaced populations and the government’s role in negotiating with the international community regarding what has already been lost and what is going to be at risk. To avert future crisis, the study proposes adoption of policy guidelines, including action plans with a timeframe, to keep track with the changing climate. Increased coordination among relevant organisations is also given emphasis to combat the consequences of environmental displacement.
