Therefore, Bangladesh will have to face the challenge of mass migration, both external and internal, due to climate change as the country is not yet adequately prepared in provide permanent rights-based solutions for the relocation of such a large number of climate displaced people.

The Need for Urgent Housing, Land and Property (HLP) Rights Solutions
This 36-page report comprehensively examines the scope and causes of climate displacement across Bangladesh. Drawing on extensive fieldwork, the report highlights that climate displacement is not just a phenomenon to be addressed at some point in the future, it is a crisis that is unfolding across Bangladesh now. Sea-level rise and tropical cyclones in coastal areas, as well as flooding and riverbank erosion in mainland areas, are already resulting in the loss of homes, land and property and leading to mass displacement. Further, all of the natural hazards that are causing displacement are expected to increase in both frequency and intensity as a result of climate change – almost inevitably leading to the displacement of many millions more across Bangladesh.

concerned. Working class in the shipbreaking industries constitutes a fragile locus suffering
manifold hazards. Various categories of workers involved in shipbreaking operation remain
outside the purview of policy intervention. Their visibility in a continuous struggle for
