Spatial urban growth and its impact on land surface temperature (LST) is a high priority environmental issue for urban policy. Although the impact of horizontal spatial growth of cities on LST is well studied, the impact of the vertical spatial distribution of buildings on LST is under-investigated. This is particularly true for cities in sub...

Bangladesh is highly vulnerable to climate-induced disasters. Poor and vulnerable people
living in the country’s many disaster-prone areas are systematically excluded from access to
the formal banking systems. Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) provide the opportunity of
financial inclusion for these people. This paper reveals that MFIs provide...

smoothing on the coping strategies of poor households in north-western Bangladesh during the
phenomenon of seasonal food insecurity known as monga. The analysis suggests that the
nature and intensity of coping strategies adopted by households depends on their
ass...
