In order to face the challenge of mass migration and displacement as a result of the effects of

climate change, it is essential that Bangladesh is adequately prepared so that the vast majority of those displaced will be supported with adequate resettlement and rehabilitation schemes, whilst also ensuring that their basic human rights are respected. One of the major

concerns associated with resettling climate displaced people will be to increase the availability of affordable, safe and well-­‐located land that can be effectively utilized by climate displaced persons requiring new land resources. Given this context, the Study Report

will categorize land availability in Bangladesh that could ostensibly be used to resettle climate displaced communities as well as indicating ten key land parcels that could be sought for donation/purchase for contributing to the resolution of climate displacement.
