The coastal region of Bangladesh is affected by climate Abb. change in multiple ways: flooding occurs frequently in the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna delta, and sea level Stud rise is above global average, leading to river blocking, erosion and salinization. Our international research team including natural and social scientists has developed an integrated monitoring concept for this region. In this article we report the measured, ongoing changes in the water cycle and in coastal sea level dynamics. We further analyze whether such environmental stressors indeed lead to migration and to land use changes, which are often assumed.
