Climate change is a reality now and accelerating rapidly. It is happening and has already started to influence our life. Being not responsible at all, Bangladesh is the frontline victim of climate change in the globe. Flood, tropical cyclones, droughts, storm surges are most likely to become frequent and severe in coming years and will make it more difficult to achieve Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). So, action is needed to go for future activities to cope with climate change impact as well as make our community more resilient to climate changes.

Knowledge on climate change risks could help taking adaptation measures into national policy and planning processes. To address climate change, Center for Climate Change and Sustainability Research is going to conduct International Conference on Climate Change Impact and Adaptation (I3CIA-2013).

It focuses on advances in scientific research, low carbon technologies, atmospheric phenomena which are relevant in developing countries, impacts (on land, sea and air) and mitigation, socio-economic impacts in developing countries, and climate change adaptation.
