abstract: Bangladesh is considered as the most threatened country in the world referring to climate change impact. The entire world is now positively conscious about the potential threat that is going to affect almost each and every parts of the planet in different magnitudes and in different dimensions. One significant aspect is the possible sea-level rise that is estimated to displace about one-third of the population of Bangladesh if it rises more than 3 meters from present average sea-level. Multiplied impacts are going to affect different aspects of the country such as food security, human health, bio-diversity loss etc. and finally the impact will potentially affect other parts of the world through the world’s global partnership. The question appears whether the nation is ready to cope with the possible change. The impact of climate change may affect locally but its management must be global and the mega- issues can only be tackled if the entire earth unites to work together. So the seminar intends to address certain selected aspects which are imminent and burning and yet to be decided appropriately to outline a strategy and to show how and where we can work together to tackle the problem of the 21st century – the century which is going to the most important in earth’s history. During the last several world meets the national leaders have perpetually been unsuccessful due to improper understanding of three things – one is the reasons of crises, the second one is the depth and dimension of the effect and the third one is the possible way of solution. The proposed seminar is a small effort to unite ideas and concepts to open up a path for better understanding of the three misunderstood goals.
The seminar will provide an opportunity to discuss current environmental issues, promote greater collaboration and strengthen the connection among scientists, policy makers and practitioners.
