This country overview paper offers a perspective overview of climate change and land tenure rights in Bangladesh. It provides a review and analysis of how the official climate responses and those of other stakeholders impact on the land tenure, use and rights of people. Lastly, it discusses the emergent impacts/implications of climate change on land tenure rights, land use systems and governance.
In undertaking the above discussions, the paper has brought into particular focus the socio-economic issues of poor, marginalized, and at-risk sectors.
This paper is not based on any comprehensive study, but rather it is a compilation of relevant information gathered through some structured interviews. The results of these interviews have been validated by 26 civil society organization (CSO) activists (four females and 22 males) through an online workshop organized by ALRD on 3 September 2023. This paper incorporates the inputs generated from the rich exchange of ideas by the participants.
