Seasonality and Food Insecurity: A Study on Sundarban Impact Zone of Bangladesh


Bangladesh is a developing country and food policy is important for individuals or those who run various safety net programme. Food Insecurity could be seasonal for those who are very much dependent on natural resources like Sundarban Impact Zones. The season when the local people suffer from food insecurity and found that the months like Srabon (July-August), Vadra (August-September), Ashwin (September-October) and Kartik (October-November) are the most food insecure months of a year. During these four months about 30% to 40% people suffers serious food insecurity problems. The average income group of that area is 2000 to 10000 Tk and that is 80% of total income group. Also there are various social safetynet programs and people are dependent on them at their food insecure period. By identifying the food insecure period we can develop more effective food security plan to survive from their struggle.

Surface Temperature and NDVI Generation and Relation between Them: Application of Remote Sensing


Temperature is one of the most important climatic parameters and there are many methods to estimate the surface temperature distribution. The aim of this study is to analyze the surface temperature and develop a relationship between surface temperature, land cover and NDVI using satellite image. In this research band no 6 from Landsat TM satellite image was used to estimate surface temperature and NDVI. Remote sensing is an effective tool for classification of landcover and NDVI. Also regression analysis is an effective statistical tool by which the relationship between land cover, surface temperature and NDVI can be identify. In this paper statistical analysis, Geographic Information system and Remote sensing – all are used to identify the relationship between three of them. And in result, it is found that the temperature is comparatively low in vegetation area and in non vegetation area temperature is high. The correlation between both of them is found 35% and also regression value is found 0.17. The paper will regard as one of most effective methodologies to generate surface temperature with consideration of various geographical phenomena and also a relationship between them.

Methodology for Development of GIS Database for Master Plan

Abstract: Geographic Information System (GIS) is a decision making systematic tool which helps to create database for planning purpose. To create baseline data with GIS, a step by step methodology is needed. The database for master plan requires an effective integrated methodology. In Bangladesh we do not have that such GIS methodology for master plan. This work presents a methodology for the integration of heterogeneous and distributed GIS database creation process. It will guide to integrate various types of data layers like physical features, landuse features and other data field which are needed for master plan. In this study how GIS data structure could be used and designed are also described. Various development organizations of Bangladesh now working with individual methodology for the creation of GIS database for master plan purpose. This paper will help for a common use of GIS database creation.
