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