Abstract : Food-energy-water (FEW) systems are increasingly vulnerable to natural hazards and climate change risks, yet humans depend on these systems for their daily needs, wellbeing, and survival. We investigated how adaptations related to FEW vulnerabilities are occurring and what the global community can learn about the interactions across these adaptations. We conducted a global analysis of a data set derived from scientific literature to present the first large scale assessment (n = 1,204) of evidence-based FEW-related climate adaptations. We found that the most frequently reported adaptations to FEW vulnerabilities by continent occurred in Africa (n = 495) and Asia (n = 492). Adaptations targeting food security were more robustly documented than those relevant to water and energy security, suggesting a greater global demand to address food security. Determining statistically significant associations, we found a network of connections between variables characterizing FEW-related adaptations and showed interconnectedness between a variety of natural hazards, exposures, sectors, actors, cross-cutting topics and geographic locations. Connectivity was found between the vulnerabilities food security, water, community sustainability, and response to sea level rise across cities, settlements, and key infrastructure sectors. Additionally, generalized linear regression models revealed potential synergies and tradeoffs among FEW adaptations, such as a necessity to synergistically adapt syst

Message From Executive Director

Mohammad Arifur Rahman

With great pleasure, I welcome you all to Bangladesh Poribeshbid Society- a national level platform for all environmental graduates in Bangladesh. We wish to be connected with environmental graduates and put collective efforts to progress environmental education and professional development of the graduates. From the beginning of the Society, we have already started various activities for supporting our members through providing information on jobs and scholarship opportunities, creating awareness through seminars and publications, and connecting graduates and current students through networking programs. We will explore every opportunity for our members and establish our professional positions in all sectors in Bangladesh. Also, we will take collaborative actions with other environmental organizations for enhancing environmental awareness and environmental protection in Bangladesh. I expect your warm and heartiest cooperation for fulfilling our mission and vision of the Society.

Message From President

Dr. Md. Mahfuzur Rahman

With the growing concerns for environmental protection, climate change and sustainable development, the necessity of environmental education and environmental profession have been well established around the world including Bangladesh in recent decades. While education in environmental science-related subjects has been initiated in Bangladesh since 1996, the environmental graduates are facing huge challenges for positioning their professional careers within mainstream government and non-government sectors due to the lack of professional institutions that can raise voice for all. A collective effort to overcome those challenges has been felt by the environmental graduates of Bangladesh for a long time, which led to the formation of the “Bangladesh Poribeshbid Society” in 2020. The society will act as a leading national platform for all environmental graduates in Bangladesh. From the beginning, we will put every effort to provide support to our graduates for developing their academic excellence and professional career at home and abroad. In addition, we will promote environmental awareness in every sphere of society and will support government and non-government organizations for strengthening policies and environment-friendly practices in Bangladesh. I welcome all environmental graduates from different educational institutions to join “Bangladesh Poribeshbid Society” and strengthen our collective endeavor.
