    The objective of this study is to improve understanding of the implications of climate change for the groundwater systems in coastal Bangladesh. This is achieved by: (a) obtaining available geologic, hydrologic, and geochemical information on coastal aquifers of Bangladesh; (b) developing groundwater flow and salt transport models representing general features and conditions along the coast of Bangladesh; and (c) simulating potential changes in the groundwater systems due to various aspects of human activity and climate change.

    This is a weighty report of formidable bulk and understandably so. Rarely has a Workshop in Bangladesh or anywhere else been so comprehensive in mandate or assembled such an array of fisheries expertise. Why was the workshop held? Quite simply, to give effect to Bangladesh's vision of fisheries development and management, set forth in its Perspective Development Plan for 1995-2010.

    The study examines Bangladesh's
    extreme vulnerability to climate change, whose low-lying
    topography, and funnel-shaped coast, further exposes the
    land to cyclones, and tidal surges, resulting in seasonal
    floods. These factors, and the large population base,
    widespread poverty, aggravated by the lack of strong
    institutional development, makes the country particularly
    vulnerable to climate variability. Various climatic factors,

    In a changing climate, saltwater
    intrusion is expected to worsen in low-lying coastal areas
    around the world. Understanding the physical and economic
    effects of salinity ingress, and planning adaptation, are
    key to the long-term development of countries for which sea
    level rise has been identified as a major risk from climate
    change. This paper presents a study conducted in Bangladesh,
    which quantifies the prospective relationship between
