Global warming and climate change are major concerns now that have severe impacts on agriculture, living organisms and ultimately the total environment. Bangladesh is the most vulnerable country in the world to climate change. Because the agricultural sector has become increasingly vulnerable to the frequency of flash floods, cyclones, storms, tidal surges, salinity, cold and heat waves, and droughts. Given the huge challenges posed by climate change and unpredictability, as well as the consequences for agriculture and the environment, it is critical to conduct coordinated and methodical research encompassing multi-disciplinary sectors. In light of this, the Institute of Climate Change and Environment (ICCE) was founded in 2022 to produce qualified workforce via education, research, and training on climate change and its impact on agriculture and the environment using various modern methodologies and instruments. The institute is intended to serve as a Center of Excellence for climate change research and education in Bangladesh. It will generate knowledge about climate change processes, impacts of climate change on agriculture, fisheries, livestock, and other sectors, and develop adaptation and mitigation measures to deal with the change. The Institute will establish linkages with national and international organizations including Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Global Environmental Facility (GEF), Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and promote research and education on climate change and environment.
