Bangladesh - Climate Change Induced Displacement: Migration as an Adaptation Strategy

Bangladesh, a low-lying deltaic country of South Asia, is currently facing many climate change related challenges -- sea-level rise, floods, drought, cyclone, saline inoculation, river bank and coastal erosion and water-logging. The Earth Policy Institute predicted that 1m rise in sea level will lead to landlessness of 14.8 million people, 29,846 sq. km. area of land will be lost and 40 million people will be displaced.
