An article by Displacement Solutions, Bangladesh’s Climate Displacement Nightmare, has just been published by The Ecologist. Written by Scott Leckie, Ezekiel Simperingham and Jordan Bakker after their field trip to Bangladesh in January 2011, this article discusses the crisis that climate change poses for Bangladesh. There are currently 6.5 million climate displaced persons in Bangladesh, and it is forecast that many millions more will lose their houses, lands and properties in the years to come. In response to this devastating situation, the article recommends a number of human rights-based measures to be taken by civil society groups in Bangladesh, the national Government and the broader international community. Action must be taken now to protect the human rights of all current displaced persons in Bangladesh, and to prevent mass human rights violations in the future. To read this article, click here.
