High End climate Impact and eXtremes (HELIX)

HELIX was a 4-year consortium research project, funded by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Denmark, with research partners from 15 institutions from UK, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Kenya and India.  The project aimed to assess climate change impacts through excellent research and stakeholder engagements under a world of 2°C, 4°C and 6°C. As a partner of HELIX, IWFM, BUET worked on South Asia (case study: Bangladesh) for the apprehended implications of higher-end scenarios beyond 2°C, 4°C and 6°C and possible warming of the world upon different bio-physical systems of the country like agriculture, water resources, ecology, infrastructure, health and socio-economy.
