Changes in climate, associated hazards, local adaptations in agriculture, and socioeconomic factors affecting adaptation were investigated using data from a large survey of 2310 households (HHs) in the Koshi River Basin (KRB), Nepal. More than 80% of HHs had perceived changes in climate in the 10 years preceding the survey, and 20–40% had perceived increases in the occurrence of droughts, dry spells, floods, and livestock diseases.

The concepts of vulnerability and resilience govern contemporary natural hazard-led disaster risk management approaches. However, the empirical assimilation of socioeconomic resilience and its calibration with poverty and vulnerability are very few, which inhibit a rational process of risk analysis and policy making. In this study, we performed an empirical investigation of socioeconomic resilience to natural hazard-triggered disasters regarding tropical cyclone affected communities in southwestern coastal Bangladesh.

This new study of nine coastal cities around the world published in the latest edition of journal Natural Hazards, says that Kolkata is among the most flood vulnerable cities in world and could experience coastal flooding as the city is built on river delta.

This study explored the feasibility and acceptability of harvested rainwater in rural communities of Bangladesh as well as densely populated City like Dhaka, using simple and low-cost technology. As a part of this study, a field survey was conducted in the water-scarce Dhaka City. Four slums were selected for conducting questionnaire survey.
