Sea level rise to cause migrating 2 lakh people in Bangladesh

Increased soil salinity due to climate change-induced rises in sea-levels is likely to force nearly 2 lakh coastal residents to migrate to inland areas within Bangladesh to find alternate livelihoods, according to a study.

Researchers at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Ohio State University conducted the study, “Coastal Climate Change, Soil Salinity, and Human Migration in Bangladesh”.

The study examines, for the first time, the complex relationship between flooding, soil salinity, rural livelihoods and migration; as well as the probable adaptation strategies, said a press release on Tuesday.

Many parts of Bangladesh are under severe threat of future sea-level submergence, but studies show the migratory response to flooding is likely to be minimal, as most farmers have already adapted their cultivation practices to cope with changes in the frequency and intensity of flooding in this deltaic region.
