Report on adaptation in Sundarbans tomorrow
Findings of a new study - ‘Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerabilities and Adaptation in Indian Sundarbans’ - will be formally released on Wednesday (Dec 28), reports UNB.
A panel discussion on ‘Bangladesh, India and Climate Change: Sharing Experiences and Evidence from the Sundarbans’ will also be held the same day at the BIAM auditorium in the city.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), and India & Coastal Development Partnership (CDP), Bangladesh will jointly organise the two events.
The CSE, a New Delhi-based research and advocacy body, has done the comprehensive analysis of the climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation needs in the Indian Sundarbans.
The Sundarbans, world’s largest mangrove forest straddling both Bangladesh and India, is a fragile ecosystem, and one which is extremely vulnerable to climate change.
Despite the wealth of information available on the region, there is little understanding of how various impacts will hit and are hitting lives and livelihoods.
In the Indian part of the Sundarbans what compounds these impacts is the severe ‘development deficit’ that the region is saddled with.
