3
Global Warming
  • Temperature rises of 0.74 0C per century

4
Ice melting
  • Images gathered from the Defense Meteorological
    Satellite Program of NASA show the minimum Arctic
    sea ice concentration 1979 (left) and 2003
    (right).

Cracks in Ice bars
6
Sea Level Rise (1980-2000)
  • 20 cm rise of Global Sea Level in last century.
  • Prediction of another 80 cm rise by 2100.

7
Green house effect
8
Increase of Green house gases
  • Green house gases Co2, CH4, NO

9
Emission of Green house gases
  • Emission of Co2 Bangladesh lt 0.2 ton/yr

10
Climatic Condition of Bangladesh
  • Mean daily temperature of Bangladesh has
    increased with a rate of 1.03 0C per 100 years

11
Change of mean temperature (0C/year)
12
Impacts of climate change on Bangladesh
  • Human Health impacts
  • Increase of vector born diseases
  • Ecosystem Impacts
  • Coastal wetland loss from sea level rise
  • Increase of salinity
  • Agriculture Impacts
  • Adverse effect on wheat, potato, Boro yield
  • Loss of agricultural lands
  • Water Resources Impacts
  • Increase of drought, intensity of flood and
    cyclone
  • Market Impacts
  • Increase energy demand in winter for heasting and
    summer for cooling

13
Impact on Agriculture
  • Wheat and Boro coverage area of Bangladesh

14
Background
  • September 2007
  • Climate Change Cell of Department of Environment
    requested Director, Institute of Water and Flood
    Management (IWFM) to coordinate climate change
    related activities.
  • A meeting was held in the Vice Chancellors
    office with representative of IWFM, Climate
    Change Cell of DOE, DFID.
  • Vice Chancellor of BUET request director IWFM to
    establish a climate change study cell.

15
Background..
  • February 2008
  • The cell was formally approved by the meeting
    (No.62) of the Board of Governess of IWFM held on
    February 24, 2008.
  • September 2008
  • Advisory Committee of the CCSC has been formed by
    the meeting (No.63) of the Board of Governors of
    IWFM .
  • Cell is approved by the Syndicate (No. 426) on
    September 24, 2008.

16
Vision
  • The vision of the Climate Change Study Cell is
    to establish itself as the premier knowledge
    center on climate change risk and adaptation for
    Bangladesh.

17
Mission
  • To improve knowledge about climate change and
    associated risk to Bangladesh
  • To increase awareness of the planners, policy
    makers about the effects of climate change
  • To become institutional home for climate modeling
    and predicting future scenarios
  • To strengthen capacity of professionals in
    climate change modeling and
  • To share knowledge and expertise with other
    organizations.

18
Scope
  • Research
  • Short courses
  • Workshop
  • Seminar
  • Advisory Services
  • Conference
  • Journal publications
  • Climate change Database
  • Digital and web based dissemination of
    information
