Abstract [en]

In the coming years, poor village populations in Bangladesh are expected to feel tangible climate change impacts in multiple and catastrophic forms impacting on their livelihoods and survival. Human adaptation to these impacts will thus be imperative. Research in one rural, flood-prone village in Bangladesh provides valuable information about the role of formal and informal social networks in coping with climate impacts, and key individuals who assist in real-time adaptation. Key individuals within this village network contribute to rural adaptability in that they: provide necessary leadership and management during flood times; enhance the social capacity to organize and coordinate; provide the framework for villagers to communicate, mobilize and voice concerns; create a link to local organizations and resulting resilience building; and attend to the needs of villagers.
