Interview with Golam Rabbani about the findings of the Bangladesh case study of CDKN’s Loss and Damage in Vulnerable Countries Initiative.
Focus: The impact of salinity intrusion on rice production and drinking water. Salinity intrusion is partly caused by sea level rise and cyclones.
Research area: Sathkira District, Shyamnagar sub-district
In Sathkira District, 98% of the survey respondents (N=360) experienced adverse effects of salinity intrusion caused by sea level rise and inundations after cyclones. The most severe impacts are on rice production and drinking water. Cyclone Aila in 2009 caused a total rice crop failure. In the following two years rice yields were far below pre-Aila level due to high salinity levels. This had a severe impact on income and food security because the majority of the population depends on rice cultivation. The loss in rice production for the four study villages was estimated at 1.9 million US$. Salinity intrusion also caused a sharp increase in water borne diseases and skin and eye infections.

Water table of groundwater is declining rapidly due to its excessive use for irrigation in agriculture sector, which causes salinity water intrusion, posing a serious thereat to the ecosystem and biodiversity of the southern part of the country.
On the other hand according to Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (WASA), its total water production of 87 percent is groundwater and 12 percent is surface water.
Managing director of Wasa mr, Taksim a Khan said , some of area of Dhaka city is now under treat of water mining.
Dr. Eftekharul Alam said “Over mining of groundwater of Dhaka city and Gazipur (a district beside the capital) regions have accelerated the speed of these intrusions. If depletion trend of groundwater of Dhaka city continues, it may be filled in by salt water and thus cause the city dwellers to migrate due to the shortage of fresh water,
