The implications of climate and sea-level change for Bangladesh by R. A Warrick( )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the results of a national assessment of the possible effects of climate and sea-level change on the environment and society of Bangladesh. The implications of global warming for the regional climate and sea level are first examined. The book then assesses what is known, and not known, about the possible effects on natural resources and socio-economic systems, including the legal implications and the special problems of the low-lying coast. The key research steps and policy directions for reducing future vulnerability are identified and discussed
Climate change and water resources in South Asia by M. Monirul Qader Mirza( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses the most pressing water resource issues in South Asia, particularly in relation to climate change and variability. This is a region with abundant water during the monsoon when floods occur, often very devastating and with droughts and scarcity of water during the dry period. Inevitably there are wide seasonal and spatial variations. These extreme events often cause substantial damages to infrastructure, property, and animal and human population. Agriculture and other key economic sectors suffer greatly during these events. The results of climate and hydrologic models indicate the possibility of increased vulnerability unless adequate adaptation measures are designed and implemented under a policy framework that includes active participation of the stakeholders." "This book should be of interest to water and climate managers; engineers; hydrologists and modelers; vulnerability, impact and adaptation (VIA) researchers; social scientists; academics and students focusing on water resources, geography, and natural hazards; water policy makers; international donors and financial institutions; NGOs; and media specialists."--Jacket
Economic integration in South Asia : issues and pathways by Muinul Islam( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic Integration in South Asia: Issues and Pathways is one of the volumes of the series titled, Imagine a New South Asia, presented by ActionAid International Asia. This volume envisions a new South Asia, free from human deprivation and poverty, where countries will become successful, proud and inclusive societies. This book demonstrates how South Asian countries can learn from the best practices in the region as well as from their failures, and also by trying to emulate the successful strategies of introducing egalitarian education and health systems of East Asia, China and Southeast Asian countries. Rich in analysis and research, this volume seeks an alternative people-centred perspective, and takes into account all those voices that have so long been unheard in policy-making processes through reviews of case studies. Not only will the findings of this volume be useful in conducting campaigns for appropriate policy and mindset changes, but these will also, eventually, make the emergence of a highly integrated South Asia truly possible
Interlinking of rivers in India : issues and concerns( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inter-basin water transfers are complex human interventions on natural systems that can have profound adverse as well as beneficial social, economic and environmental implications. India's plan to interlink its rivers (ILR) and to transfer water may, according to one set of views, generate positive benefits through improved and expanded irrigation and may also contribute to flood and drought hazards mitigation for India, although the magnitudes are debatable. However, there are opposing views, in the context of India itself, that the interlinking plan is economically prohibitive, fraught with

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The planet Earth is faced with one of the gravest threats of our time-climate change, which puts in peril all our efforts to promote sustainable development and compels us to look for ways to combat this menace. This is the backdrop that dictates the thematic construct of this book. The second installment of a series of anthologies of write-ups by eminent economist Dr Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad on various issues of socio-economic development, this book is a compilation of 21 articles and 12 power-point presentations, written over a span of two decades and a half. The commentaries here deal with the persisting issues regarding environment, climate change and water, which are entwined on various fronts and one of them cannot be really separated from the rest as far as the vast canvas of survival and development of the humankind, even of the planet Earth is concerned. The write-ups on environment and climate change deal with a range of issues including poverty, livelihood, and environmental balance; environmental protection; climate change, flood, and flood management; climate change mitigation and adaptation with particular focus on Bangladesh, the Asian region, the milestones of global efforts in combating climate change, etc. And the pieces on water resources discuss topics like integrated river basin management in the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) region, Bangladesh Water Vision 2025, water management with special reference to South Asia, addressing poverty through water action, flood management and local adaptation strategies, Indo-Bangladesh cooperation on transboundary rivers and so on. There is also an article on energy, a key issue in climate change and in the context of sustainable development. Interestingly, though the world adopted the Sustainable Development Goals only in 2015, Dr Ahmad had been writing on the importance and nature of such ambitions since the 1980s." -- Publisher's description
