“Climate Refugees Of Bangladesh” is a very simple and little step towards the struggle for grounding the term Climate Refugee into the discourse of Refugee and Migration worldwide. I hope and wish that you will bring your awareness about the impacts of climate change worldwide and the subordinate consequences for countries staying in most vulnerable situations such as Maldives, Bangladesh or parts of India.
Warming driving accelerating river erosion in Bangladesh
Trust: SIRAJGANJ, Bangladesh (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Worsening erosion along the banks of the Jamuna River has dramatically increased the number of families losing their homes and land – but dredging could help ease the problem, experts say. Erosion is a long-standing problem in Bangladesh, with much of the country made up river deltas deposited by the region’s many rivers.
But more extreme weather and heavy runoff has led to growing deposits of soil in the Jamuna River, which is in turn driving worsening riverside erosion, residents and experts say. This rainy season alone, hundreds of families in Sirajganj district have lost their homes or their farmland, they said.
