Abstract

Bangladesh is one of the major countries vulnerable to climate change. The country is particularly at risk because of its geographical location, climatic variability, global warming and sea level rise. Sea level rise, frequent storm surge and recent cyclones such as A1LA and SIDR are intensifying salinity affecting the livelihoods of coastal region people especially in the south western part of Bangladesh. Along with salinity intrusion, corruption by local leaders and government officials, exploitation by big shrimp farmers, absence of drinking / sweet water have adversely affected local people. This paper explores the alternative mechanisms adopted by coastal communities to cope with increased salinity.
