This photo is taken on the dated 14 August 2018 from Manikganj, Bangladesh. In this photo one woman is harvesting jute plants from land. Jute-growing areas of Bangladesh to explore the potential resource use efficiency for economic benefits of selected climate smart practices to marginal landholder farmers. Integrated crop management (ICM) practices as part of climate smart jute farming (CSJF) was practised by 170 randomly selected farmers in six villages. An estimation of cost of adoption, change in fibre yields, net returns and human development index (HDI) before and after ICM interventions was done. The mean HDI value increased by 38.85% and farm income by 31.5%. The net benefits of adaptation to climate smart jute technologies were estimated based on specific adaptation actions. Empirical scientific evidence of the study indicates that the livelihoods of marginal landholders can be improved using new crop varieties, changing planting dates and bringing necessary changes in other variable inputs for line sowing, intercropping, weeding, nutrients, water and retting.

This photo was taken from Dohar, Dhaka, Bangladesh on the dated 25 June 2019. In this photograph women are harvesting chilies. Chilies plants can live between 1.5 - 15 years depending on the species. Agroforestry is responsible for almost 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Agriculture is the root cause of 80% of tropical deforestation.Global farming has reached a crisis point. Intensified land use and inefficient human systems threaten food security and drive biodiversity loss and climate change. Half the world’s fertile soil is already lost and, with an estimated 60 years of topsoil left, we need a farming strategy that restores soil and secures food production. It is possible to put global agriculture into a climate-smart future and the solution already exists. Practiced around the world, it’s known as regenerative agroforestry.For save the world from climate crisis we need to concentrate to agro based forestry.
This photo was taken from Modhupur, Tangail, Bangladesh on the date 19 July 2018. In this photograph, farmers are collecting pineapple fruit. According to Madhupur Agriculture Office, The fruit was cultivated on 8,500 hectares of land last year and on more than 10,500 hectares in this year. This fruit cultivation boosts up agroforestry industry in Bangladesh. Information about carbon sequestration potentiality of different agroforestry species in Bangladesh to combat with the pessimistic impact of climate change. Agroforestry is a land-use system receiving wider recognition not only in terms of agricultural sustainability but also in issues related to climate change. The potentiality to sequester carbon by agroforestry species in sub-tropical regions like Bangladesh is promising.
This picture depicts a family of wildebeest in Dulahazara safari park, Chokoria, Bangladesh. The sanctuary is trying to provide as natural a habitat for the animals as possible in the tropical climate of Bangladesh, in an effort to study the animal. I didn't think twice about the photo after taking it, felt like any other generic photo that is going to fall in the pile of obscurity and be lost. But by sheer chance, the photo caught my attention a few months later, and I realized, the photo shows a deeper meaning of life. It showcases a family of wildebeest, and I couldn't help but connect with it. More often than not, we look at animals as they are, animals, but its more than that, these creatures have children just like us humans, these creatures rear their families just like humans, they feel the same way we do, then how do we think that we are so different? We take away their homes, their loved ones, their lives, yet we do not bat an eye. What makes gives us the right to do so? What makes us so different?
