  • Product Description

Due to climate change extreme environmental events such as floods, cyclones, tornados and droughts will occur frequently in Bangladesh. This will result in huge population displacement, including migrant from rural to urban areas. Such migration will put great pressure on Dhaka, the capital and most desired destination for migrants. Dhaka is already burdened with many problems including overcrowding, environmental degradation, lack of infrastructure and services, social tension, conflict, poor governance etc. Dhaka has limited physical and managerial capacity to cope with such urbanization . Not surprisingly Dhaka ranks the second last amongst the worst livable cities of the world (Economic Intelligence Unit, 2010) .In the above setting, the aim of this study is to propose a range of adaptive measures at the local or root level to minimise climate change induced rural-urban migration to Dhaka. It is expected the proposed measures will reduce further deterioration whilst helping rural people to avoid the misery of urban blight in slums of Dhaka.
