By : Afsana Haque, Sarwar Jahan

Flooding caused by heavy rainfall and river over-flow has serious implications for rice production in Bangladesh. As this problem is predicted to worsen as a result of climate change, this Brief discusses some of the current impacts of flooding on rice productivity, identifies implications for the future and suggests ways for the country to adapt and respond. This analysis is based on research undertaken by Afsana Haque and Sarwar Jahan from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.
