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?
Forest Fire. It is a crisis the world is facing at the moment. Amazon is on fire; the forest of Indonesia is burning as well. These forests provide more than 20% of the oxygen of our planet. Forest Fire is an additional risk to the human health and climate change. This photograph depicts the prayer of a tree; it is requesting the humankind not to let it burn intentionally. Taken in Dhaka, Bangladesh on August 2, 2019.
The Bangladesh Wind Resource Assessment project, made possible with support from USAID's Bangladesh mission and the Bangladesh Power Division, focused on utilizing observed data from meteorological stations to adjust and inform a model that created a database for Bangladeshi investors, policy-makers and transmission planners to quantify and locate where the best wind resource and development sites were. In this photo, a boy in Chandpur, Bangladesh is learning how wind is measured with a cup anemometer. Read more about the project in this report: https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy18osti/71077.pdf.

Southwest Bangladesh is a watery world. Houses perch on steep riverbanks. Storms pummel fragile coastlines. It’s hard not to see this starkly beautiful place as engaged in a battle between water and land, with the water winning. But the land has a new ally, a living hem of mangrove forests made possible by Winrock International’s Climate Resilient Ecosystems and Livelihoods (CREL) project, funded by USAID. “If we don’t have trees, we are flooded,” says Bharati Rani Bishwash, who was left homeless after a typhoon in 2009. It’s a view that many Bangladeshis share. “I’m taking care of the trees now,” says Bishwash, “and in time the trees will take care of me."

When members of Winrock’s Climate-Resilient Ecosystems and Livelihoods (CREL) project, funded by USAID, came to Josna Akhter’s village of 240 families, they were looking for local service providers — people well respected in their communities who they could train to share skills and link others to agricultural markets. They found, even more, someone who could take those skills to a higher level. Akhter makes compost and uses it to enrich her own fields. The changes wrought by CREL have had many positive ripple effects. “Before, if we needed vegetables we’d have to go to the forest to cut a tree or bamboo, take the wood to market, sell it and with that money we’d be able to bring the vegetables back home. Now we have our own vegetables,” Akhter says.
