Abstract

This study examines the socioeconomic effects and efficacy of different adaption techniques as it relates to the economic consequences of climate change adaptation policies in Bangladesh’s coastal areas. It investigates the financial consequences of climate change impacts on coastal towns, such as saline intrusion, land loss, and cyclonic dangers, through a comprehensive assessment of the literature and empirical analysis of primary and secondary data, including government reports and academic research. Promising adaptation solutions, such as community-based resilience projects and coastal protection infrastructure, provide opportunities to improve social welfare and economic resilience despite these obstacles. To address the complex issues brought about by climate change in coastal zones, policy proposals place a strong emphasis on integrated methods, community participation, and international cooperation. This study offers significant recommendations for policymakers and stakeholders worldwide on climate resilience and sustainable development in vulnerable coastal areas, therefore contributing to academic work and informing policy debate.
