Mainstreaming adaptation benefits for Bangladesh’s freshwater ecosystems - EbA Policy Brief

EbA Policy Brief

 

Policy pointers

Policymakers working on water and biodiversity must develop policies and strategies that support the sustainable management of aquatic ecosystems and fish biodiversity, and which respond to climate change. Specific policies are needed to address climate change impacts in the fisheries sector.

 

Decision makers need research data on how climate change will affect freshwater habitats, fish biodiversity and the people dependent on them. Further research can also help identify the most successful adaptation strategies for this context.

 

Policymakers should consult fishers and replace public waterbody leasing policies with ecosystem and community-based fisheries management systems that better support adaptation.

 

Managers and policymakers must ensure that related sectors, such as water management, do not harm aquatic ecosystems and biodiversity. And sectors affecting sustainable fisheries management and adaptation planning should be better coordinated. Government stakeholders need programmes to increase their awareness of ecosystem-based adaptation.

 

Bangladesh climate change and adaptation documents such as NAPA , BCCSAP & NBSAP as well as the relevant sectors (Water Resource, Agriculture,  Forest, Fisheries,  Livestock, Environment) should have EbA included in their national policies and strategies for implementation.
