    Remediation of arsenic for agriculture sustainability, food security and health in Bangladesh

    Description
    This report presents the results of a pilot field study of arsenic risk management in crop production in Bangladesh. The study examined: the impact of raised bed aerobic rice production; the effect of soil arsenic on rice, maize and wheat in an outdoor net house pot study; the impact of soil arsenic on wheat grown in farmers fields around the experimental rice site; and, the arsenic content and water chemistry of deep irrigation tube wells. The report was published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in 2007.

    Review of mangrove and seagrass ecosystems and their linkage to fisheries and fisheries management

    Description
    This report reviews the scientific literature that has been published on the extent of mangrove and seagrass habitats and their relationship to fisheries production. The principal findings reveal that the linkages between fisheries and mangrove or seagrass vary by species and life stage and recommends the need for a more holistic approach to the management of coastal environments and the fisheries they contain. This report was published by the FAO in 2013.

    River salinity and climate change: evidence from coastal Bangladesh

    Description
    This paper presents a study conducted in Bangladesh, which quantifies the prospective relationship between climate-induced changes in sea level, temperature, rainfall, and altered riverine flows from the Himalayas, and the spread and intensity of salinization on river water in the coastal zone for 2050. It predicts that these changes will lead to significant drinking water shortages in coastal urban areas and scarcity of water for irrigation for dry-season agriculture. This report was published by the World Bank in 2014.

    Role of coastal forests in the mitigation of tsunami impacts, Part 1

    Description
    This report (in two parts) follows the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and evaluates the effectiveness of planting or managing trees and forests as a method of shielding coastlines from the physical aspects of tsunamis. It examines whether the devastation caused by this tsunami could have been reduced, the effectiveness of coastal forests as a solution, how coastal forests work as a barrier, implications for coastal forest management and whether coastal forests could become a liability. This report was published by the FAO in 2007.
