Indian Sundarbans Delta: a vision

This document highlights the need for climate change adaptation solutions in the Indian Sundarbans Delta and proposes an alternative scenario to the ‘business as usual'.

This document argues that highly informed policy decisions are necessary to guide action to cope with pressures of predicted changes in the Sundarbans ecoregion, including population growth and climate change. It highlights the need for new adaptive solutions to prevent exposing the population to these impacts and to reduce their vulnerability. It is argued that the pattern of governance in the Indian Sundarbans Delta has struggled to keep up with the management and development challenges posed. It concludes that, in the absence of the needed new adaptive solutions, this environmentally and economically important area is rapidly heading towards an uncertain future.
