Scholarcy highlights

  • Numerous researches came up with various estimates about climate migrants from coastal Bangladesh, yet the connections between vulnerability and forced displacement are poorly understood
  • This research is aimed first, to assess the linkages between people’s livelihood vulnerability and their intention for outmigration from the coast; second, to identify the vulnerability reduction measures, implementation of which may significantly arrest the likely trend of forced migration
  • Empirical part of this research was conducted in three coastal villages in Bangladesh
  • Given the scenario of sea level rise, respondents were first asked—what they or their descendent would probably do if their most parcels of farmland gradually go under half-knee deep sea water by the middle of this century
  • The policy implication is to avoid the occurrence of any large scale forced migration from the vulnerable coast of Bangladesh measures must be initiated in line with the findings without further delay
