Addressing Climate Change Induced Displacement And Migration In Bangladesh: Taking Human Rights Based Approach
Bangladesh, one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to the impacts of climate change, has been dealing with climate change-related disasters and associated impacts, particularly displacement and migration, for decades. In recent years, the number of weather-related hazards has increased due to climate change resulting in a rise in displacement and migration. The 2019 flood impacted people of 21 districts in Bangladesh affecting an estimated 580,000 people and displacing more than 307,000 people.
This report is based on a study undertaken by ActionAid Bangladesh with support from ActionAid International and Climate Action Network South Asia (CANSA) between September 2019 to November 2020 in five districts of Bangladesh to identify people-centred solutions to address displacement and migration associated with climate change impacts in Bangladesh.
