I am Syed Hafizur Rahman, Professor at Department of Environmental Sciences, Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh. I have been involved in multi-disciplinary environmental research since 1994-1995. My research interests have been on water related climate change issues, climate change adaptation technologies, water resource management, abatement of water pollution, treatment of waste water and surface water using EC technology. I have developed an interest in multidisciplinary research on complex issues relating to climate change and its effects on micro-environment. I have been doing research on vulnerability and impact assessment for climate change, ecosystem-based adaptation and sustainable adaptation due to climate change.
