“Where the Rain Falls” Project – Case Study: Bangladesh
United Nations University
Global climate change and induced effects on weather patterns have been causing problems for human systems across the globe, especially for food production and the livelihoods of poor people who directly depend on natural resources. The highly complex relationships between climate change, in particular in terms of rainfall variability and shifting seasons, rural livelihoods, food security, social inequality and migration are, however, not well understood. In a bid to investigate these linkages and to inform policymakers about the implications of climate change on people’s livelihoods, food insecurity and migration, the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and CARE International have jointly carried out empirical research in eight countries across the globe. As a part of this effort, Bangladesh has been selected for a case study, because it is one of the countries that are most severely affected by climate change.
