Abstract

­

Bangladesh has been taken into consideration as a climate vulnerable country and the impacts of climate change increase threats of adverse condition in agricultural production. This study is primarily based on assessing farmer’s adaptive capacities to adaptation techniques, its determinants and problems of taking adaptations. It’s an empirical study that is conducted on the basis of 100 mango producers lived in the Chapai Nawabganj district. Adaptive Capacity Index (ACI) is utilized to calculate the adaptive capacity of farmers and using Multiple Regression Model (MRM) the determinants of adaptive capacities are identified based on OLS method. Another comprehensive index called Problem Confrontation Index (PCI) is also applied to rank the problems confronted by farmers to take adaptation techniques. The findings of this study reveal that farmer’s average adaptive capacity is moderate in degree in the study area which is 0.64 and 73% farmers are moderate level adapters. In addition, regression analysis reveals that the variables education, training, family size and weekly mango orchard visit have significant impact on the adaptive capacities of mango producers lived in the study area. It is also found that “lack of agricultural loan” ranked top and appears to be the most intense trouble of the mango producers to take adaptation techniques in the region studied. Finally, this study suggests that government should formulate proper policy to enhance adaptive capacities of farmers in Bangladesh.

Framing of Climate Change Stories Covered by The Kenyan Daily Nation and The People Daily Newspapers Henry H. Neondo

Framing of Climate Change Stories Covered by The Kenyan Daily Nation and The People Daily Newspapers

Author (s)

Henry H. Neondo

Abstract

­

Data collected through qualitative content analysis method and in-depth interviews of sources of information and journalists from two daily newspapers in Kenya, the Daily Nation and the People Daily on how they framed climate change stories during part of 2012, the year when the Kyoto Protocol was ending, found that although the Kenyan media cover climate change, these articles are placed anywhere but front page, rarely took leadership positions on any given page and scarcely on top left quadrant. In effect the media coverage on climate change may not have prominently displayed climate change articles as to solicit public discourses, failed to support the media advocacy objective of the climate change activists and perhaps contributed to the failure of government not to implement the provision of such key international instruments as the Kyoto Protocol.  The study recommended that gate keepers be part of the media advocacy for the Public Relations practitioners.

Impact of Climate Change on Agricultural Production in Bangladesh: A Review Md. Nur Islam & Md. Abdul Wadud

Impact of Climate Change on Agricultural Production in Bangladesh:  A Review

Author (s)

Md. Nur Islam & Md. Abdul Wadud

Abstract

Bangladesh is a severely more vulnerable country to climate variation; its impact on agricultural production is extensive due to its different effects.   The effect depends on its geographical location and environmental awareness. Impact of climate variation on agriculture is a global concern. Therefore in Bangladesh where lives and livelihood depend on agriculture, it’s becoming a great threat for national food safekeeping. The review study endeavors to reveal the possible impact of climate change on agricultural production in Bangladesh covering the period from 1972 to 2019. Bangladesh has already begun to experience a negative impact. Temperature is progressively rising; river bank erosion, frequency of floods, magnitude of cyclone, storm surge, salinity intrusion, and the volatility of precipitation has enhanced compared to the past that led to the possibility of reducing agricultural production. For instance, climate alteration has become more concern for country’s food safety. This is now the proper time to take and set up proper rules and guidelines through an inflexible outlook. The Bangladesh government tries to reduce the consequence of climate variation through the help of various national and international organizations. An inclusive measurement is ensured to enhance the competency of encountering climate change; otherwise it would be the cost of massive loss, particularly on agriculture in Bangladesh.
