PROJECTS

  1. Improvement of Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation Capacity of the farmers in Northern Bangladesh

    Funded by: Ministrty of Science and Technology

    Position: Principal Investigator (PI)

    Description: Bangladesh is considered as one of the most vulnerable country due to the impact of climate change. Among the different sectors, agriculture sector is one of the most vulnerable one. The purpose of the present was to explore the farmer’s perception of these changes, how they are coping with the situation, problems facing during adaptation and possible way forward. The investigation was carried out through a structured questionnaire in the northern (Dinajpur, Thakurgaon and Panchagarh district) part of Bangladesh. Data were collected by an interview schedule from a sample of 104 farmers. The results of the study reveal that, farmers are aware about these changes. Among the different changes, drought (41.3%) related difficulties are more prone in the northern part of Bangladesh followed by increased in temperature (36.5%). Farmers are taking different adaptation strategies to combat with the situation. For mitigation of adverse impact of drought, famers are practicing homestead agroforestry, improving irrigational facilities etc. Again, in case of flood, farmers are storing feeds for livestock, increasing the dyke of ponds and storing dry foods. Moreover, farmers are introducing adaptive cropping systems. Farmers are cultivating hybrid maize, introducing drought tolerant crop varieties, changing cropping pattern, planting trees around the crop field and homestead area. Low market price of the crops produced is one of the major concerns of the farmers during production. Beside these, unfavorable weather condition and lack of quality inputs are also causing difficulties during adaptation process.
