Contributing to Fisheries and Aquaculture Adaptation to Climate Change in Bangladesh

The Bangladeshi floodplains, which stretch out from the Padma, Jamuna and Meghna Rivers, are the lifeblood of communities throughout the densely-populated nation. Bangladesh has a turbulent tropical climate that brings annual monsoons as well as tropical cyclones that occasionally devastate the region.
