HELIX EXPERT Workshop


Challenges and Opportunities for Bangladesh after Paris Agreement
Background
Climate change is a reality now and being demonstrated across the globe through various climate
events. Warming up of our earth with gradual increase of temperature as forecasted by the
scientific community is no longer a myth. Climate change beyond 2C, 4C and 6C is to impact
severely as a result of "extreme" events to be occurred in upcoming years. To address this
problem, an initiative has been taken through the project "HELIX". The High-End cLimate Impacts
and eXtremes (HELIX) is a collaborative project funded by European Union, which started in
November 2013, with sixteen participating institutions led by the Exeter University, UK.
Assessment of climate change will be conducted in HELIX on a global scale under a range of
physical and socio-economic condition with consideration of different adaptations scenarios. As
a partner of HELIX, we will focus on South Asia(case study: Bangladesh) for the apprehended
implications of higher-end scenarios beyond 2C, 4C and 6C and possible warming of the world
upon different bio-physical systems of the country like agriculture, water resources, ecology,
infrastructure, health, socio-economy etc. In this stakeholder workshop, valued participants are
expected to provide their important ideas, expectations and insights upon which this study will
get valuable intellectual inputs for the way forward in the research process.
