When most people think of Bangladesh’s native ecosystems, the Sundarbans — the world’s largest mangrove forest — are probably the first thing that come to mind.

This paper investigates possible impacts of climate change on the poor communities of the Bangladesh Sundarbans via changes in aquatic salinity and mangrove species. The implications for poor communities are assessed by computing changes in high-value mangrove species for the five sub-districts in the Sundarbans.

Question raised in Lok Sabha on Conservation of Sunderbans, 26/04/2016. The Government of India has a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, signed on 6th September, 2011. The conservation of Sunderbans, interalia, includes conservation of Royal Bengal Tigers also.

The Sundarban of India and Bangladesh (about 6000 km²) are the only mangrove forests inhabited by a sizeable population of tigers. The adjoining area also supports one of the highest human densities and experiences severe human-tiger conflicts. We used GPS-Satellite and VHF radio-collars on 6 (3 males and 3 female) tigers to study their ranging patterns and habitat preference.
