Bangladesh is to be extremely vulnerable to climate change. The salinity intrusion (naturally and human induced) in the coastal areas increased the vulnerability manifolds. The study presents the impacts of salinity problem on livelihood in the coastal village and tries to reveal the adaptive strategies they have undertaken. In-depth interview and observation were the main tools to collect the relevant information in qualitative approach. Due to climate change, natural setting already been transformed such as rise of sea level, increasing salinity, floods and loss of land could make thousands of coastal people climate refugees. It has also been observed that both natural and man-made changes can alter the patterns of poor peoples’ lives and livelihoods. Faulty development policies and economic interests of the rich, such as promoting shrimp farming in a saline-prone zone make the environmental settings more vulnerable. Communities living at Abadchandipur (Shyamnagar) have suffered severely from salinity problem which have created huge obstacles against livelihood options and economic development in the region. These changes environmental settings are threatening the food and water security of poor communities and making them more marginalized than before. Staying in lots of problems, still the coastal people are struggling to adapt changes situation.Download
