The Response of Agriculture in Bangladesh to Climate Change: A Review

Sushmita Roy


Human activities are expected to result in significant temperature increases, which will primarily affect low-lying countries, particularly Bangladesh because of its agriculturally based economy. Bangladesh is a frequent victim of the pattern of climate change, which includes changing temperatures, rainfall patterns, the production of carbon dioxide (CO2), the destruction of the ozone layer (O3), melting ice and sea-level rise, natural calamities, and so on. Moreover, its geographical situation, population density, extreme poverty, and dependency on agriculture are also responsible for prolonging the stresses and slowing down the progress of agriculture cultivation, and achieving the desired food security by 2030, which was declared by the United Nations in September 2015. This is why I argue for a consideration of agricultural harm from the position of anthropogenic climate change. First and foremost, such a position allows for an understanding of Bangladeshi agriculture and its climate change. Secondly, this focus draws attention the climate change and its impact that affects the process of agriculture progression. Finally, a frontier concentration on the climate change adaptation strategies by the government.
