    Remediation of arsenic for agriculture sustainability, food security and health in Bangladesh

    Description
    This report presents the results of a pilot field study of arsenic risk management in crop production in Bangladesh.

    River salinity and climate change: evidence from coastal Bangladesh

    Description
    This paper presents a study conducted in Bangladesh, which quantifies the prospective relationship between climate-induced changes in sea level, temperature, rainfall, and altered riverine flows from the Himalayas, and the spread and intensity of salinization on river water in the coastal zone for 2050. It predicts that these changes will lead to significant drinking water shortages in coastal urban areas and scarcity of water for irrigation for dry-season agriculture. This report was published by the World Bank in 2014.

    Shifting waterscapes: explaining basin closure in the Lower Krishna Basin, South India

    Description
    This study investigates the main causes of the closure of the Lower Krishna River Basin in South India: the decrease in the surface water inflow into the lower basin due to water development in the upper basin and uncontrolled irrigation development of private groundwater abstraction. This study was published by IWMI in 2007.
