Women in the Indian Bengal delta. The totally submerged land constituted over 16, hectares, while another , hectares of crops were partially damaged.

That's not an isolated occurrence. In April the same year, floods wreaked havoc on Bangladeshi farmers, damaging around , hectares of ready-to-be harvested crops, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. Official estimates suggest that in alone, the floods severely affected the livelihoods of at least eight million people living in Bangladesh.

During the monsoon season every year, between June and September, Bangladesh faces flash floods. But floods are not the only problem Bangladesh faces.

  6. Germanwatch, a Bonn-based environmental NGO, estimated that people died in Bangladesh last year due to extreme weather related events - floods, landslide, storms and cyclones. In a new global index, Bangladesh has been ranked seventh among the countries most affected by extreme weather events in 20 years since The index is part of a report, Global Climate Risk Index , which was recently released at the annual climate summit in Poland's Katowice city.

    The report was prepared analyzing damages caused by the extreme weather events that took place from to It does not tell a lot," Rahman argued. Bangladesh has been one of the fastest growing economies in the world over the past several years, with the nation's economy expanding by an average of percent over the past decade. The government is attempting to boost growth further and targeting double-digit expansion in the coming years.

    But some economists say climate change-linked problems are likely to act as a drag on the nation's growth prospects. The study pointed out that Bangladesh would face annual economic costs equivalent to about 2 percent of its GDP by , widening to 9. The reasons for these losses, according to ADB, include an immense loss of crops, land, internal migration and salinity, among other things.

    But in Bangladesh, due to climate change, economic development requires comparatively more resources and investment. This also adds to economic loss," said Raihan. Raihan also pointed out that climate-related catastrophes are causing a shift in migration and poverty patterns in Bangladesh. Farmers in the affected regions have started creating floating gardens with organic material where vegetables can be grown. Farmers create floating rafts on floodwater using water hyacinth, bamboo, cow dung, dirt, soil and other composts. Such rafts shift their position along with the water level and remain afloat for a period long enough to grow vegetables.

    Farmers cultivate summer and winter vegetables such as gourd and okra as well as other leafy vegetables on their floating gardens. The method is cheap and sustainable, according to the country's agriculture experts. Such boat schools have been in operation for almost a decade, especially in the northern part of the country.

    Boat schools are equipped with computers that have an internet connection. Local non-government organizations offer solar lamps to students for home use in areas without electricity. They travel from place to place following the river routes.

    The tradition is on the decline but might make a comeback as a method of adapting to climate change. Experts consider initiatives like floating gardens and boat schools as small solutions to a big problem. Some islands are at the risk of disappearing completely under the rising seawaters. Therefore, the country needs a strategy to combat as well as to cope with climate change. Nazrul Islam, a professor of geography and environment of the University of Dhaka, said that more resilience is needed to deal with the problem.

    We're now doing research on diversification of food in coastal areas," Islam told DW. But the expert said the cost of climate change adaptation measures remains prohibitively high and countries like Bangladesh cannot afford to spend such huge sums on them.

    Raihan believes that countries like Bangladesh should pursue global partnerships to tackle climate change. In this mission, forging a meaningful partnership with the world's developed and largest economies is also essential," said Raihan. Two powerful women — Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia — have dominated Bangladeshi politics for decades, but the South Asian country's women are still underrepresented in parliament and are politically marginalized.
