About this book

This book is based on a substantial study carried out by a team of experts in different fields from Bangladesh, following a common (IPCC) guideline and with technical support from the US Country Studies Team. The study has for the first time developed scenarios for the impacts of climate change on agriculture and water sectors, focusing on coastal agriculture and beach erosion in the context of sea-level rise. It has also taken a look at the aspect of adaptation to climate change for a country that is one of the most vulnerable and which will have to live with the impacts of climate change and changing climate. The book is meant for all those who are interested in the impacts of climate change, particularly on developing countries and on low-lying, vulnerable countries like Bangladesh. It is also relevant for those involved in the general development of poor countries under a changing climate.

'...I am sure that it will be widely consulted and cited. It is a useful addition to the library of all those interested in the impacts of climate change.' Bulletin of the American Metereorolgical Society, 81:11 (2000) 'I would recommend this book to any one interested in vulnerability and adaptation assessment in developing countries' International Journal of Climatology, 22:129 (2002)
