Abstract

This study was conducted as part of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded project “Vulnerability to Climate Change: Adaptation Strategies and layers of resilience”. Long term climatic datasets were analyzed for Bangladesh and for specific study locations in the country. The report gives general climatic characteristics of the country and trend analysis of important climatic parameters such as temperature, rainfall, etc. Mean annual maximum and minimum temperature showed a rising trend from 1971 to date. During the last decade, there is a reduction in the number of potential rainy days with respect to the 40 year normal in the majority of meteorological stations across the country. However, the annual total rainfall showed an increasing trend in the flood and drought prone areas of the country. The numbers of instances of extreme events, ie, floods, has been high during the last decade.
