One billion people will be affected due to climate change in the Himalayas

One billion people will lose their homes in the next 50 years according to the Guardian. Of them Bangladesh will account for 30 million. The North Channel Shoal is in the middle of Faridpur’s Kumar river. There is no dearth of people here who have lost their homes to river erosion between 10 and 15 times. The rate of river erosion is also increasing. The number of landless labourers is also on the rise. Villagers are flocking to the cities in a continuous procession. But women are the most vulnerable to climate change. The issues of food and social security are intricately linked with climate refugees which also puts Bangladesh at grave risk.
