Abstract

The international community has begun to accept adaptation as an important component of global responses to climate change. Community-based adaptations are emerging as one of the most effective tools to reduce climate vulnerability at a local level, especially in hard hit developing nations. Bangladesh is incredibly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, yet, leads the developing world in climate adaptation. This thesis uses a political ecology framework to analyze the efficacy of community-based climate adaptation in Bangladesh. It examines how local actions are influenced by broader national, regional and global scales of action and argues that only a multi-scale approach will effectively address climate vulnerability.
