DREAM, Bangladesh Page 0 Bangladesh is located in a disaster prone area due to its geographical location in the world. Deltaic formation and location by the coastal side is the reason for more disaster in the area. According to the Global Climate Risk Index, 2010 published by German Watch, an international Research organization that there are 10 most disaster prone countries in the world due to climate change in the world and considering the intensity of loss and damages among these countries Bngladesh is the top most. Looking back to the disaster history of the country it is to be noted about the main devastation of life and properties of the coastal districts caused due to the severe cyclone and tidal surge of 12 November, 1970 and April, 1991.The severe cyclone (Sidre) of November, 2007, severe cyclone (Aila) of 2009 and severe cyclone (Mohasen) of 2013 caused heavy loss of life and properties of those areas also. Besides the coastal districts, the northern districts of Bangladesh are also affected widely by different calamities like cyclone, flood, drought, river erosion, cold wave etc. in each year. It has been creating a negative impact on the total economy in the area as well the whole country. Gaibandha is one of the main natural disaster affected districts of the northern area. Different types of disasters like cyclone, flood, drought, river erosion, cold wave etc are affecting the district each year and as result the normal life being hampered and causing losses of properties. Many people after losing their homesteads, livelihood assets and employment are going out to different districts in search of shelter and employment and forced to live in inhuman condition. The Ministry of Disaster and Relief, Government of Bangladesh under the Comprehensive Disaster Management Programme (CDMP) has initiated a benevolent plan to prepare Disaster Management Plan at District and Upazila level with the participation of all concerned which is considered to be praiseworthy. At the same time the cooperation provided to the Bangladesh Government for preparing the plan by UK Aid, European Union, Norwegian Embassy, Swiss Embassy, Australian Aid and UNDP also deserves praise. On behalf of the Disaster Management Committee we express our gratitude and thanks to the Government of Bangladesh and the development partner organizations for undertaking this type of programme. Our sincere thanks to "Development Research Education and Management (DREAM)" as a coordinating organization who have prepared the disaster plan after collection of different information from the field and incorporating the same in cooperation with the members of the Disaster Management Committee, different officers of the Govt. and Non-govt. organizations. We also express our sincere thanks to the Upazila Nirbahi Officer including officers of the local level Govt. and Non-govt. organizations, all members of the Disaster Management Committee, local elected representatives and the local community people who have provided different information and took active participation in preparing the plan. (Abul Kawsar Md. Nazrul Islam) President, Upazila Disaster Management Committee Palashbari, Gaibandha DREAM, Bangladesh Page 1 Bangladesh is located in a disaster prone area due to its geographical location in the world. Deltaic formation and location by the coastal side is the reason for more disaster in the area. According to the Global Climate Risk Index, 2010 published by German Watch, an international Research organization that there are 10 most disaster prone countries in the world due to climate change in the world and considering the intensity of loss and damages among these countries Bangladesh is the top most. The history of the natural disaster of the country can be remembered with great note. From different statistics it is found that the severe tidal surge occurred in 27 October, 1 November, 1886 caused severe devastation of life and properties in Patuakhali, Noakhali and Chittagong districts where 4 lacs of people lost their lives. One lac 75 thousand people died and huge and unlimited amount of properties affected by severe Hurricane and tidal surge in Chittagong and Kutubdia island in October,1897. One lac 20 thousand people died by the cyclone and tidal surge of April, 1911 in Teknaf, about three lacc people died unlimited number of livestocks and crops and properties of vast areas were affected in the coastal areas of Khulna and Chittagong by the severe cyclone and tidal surge of November, 1970. The cyclone and tidal surge of April, 1991 caused death of one lac 45 thousand people, 70 thousand livestock and huge quantity of crops affected in the coastal areas of Patuakhali and Cox's Bazar. Besides the severe cyclone (Sidre) of November, 2007 affected Barguna, Patuakhali, Pirojpur, and Bagerhat where 3406 people died , 1003 people were LOST, and about 55 thousand people were injured. Crops and properties amounting about Taka eight thousand crore were affected by the severe cyclone (Aila) of 2009. And more than 5 lac people died and 45 thousand homesteads were damaged completely by the severe cyclone (Mohosen) in 2013. Besides the coastal districts, the northern districts of Bangladesh are also affected widely by different calamities like cyclone, flood, drought, river erosion, cold wave etc. in each year. It has been creating a negative impact on the total economy in the area as well the whole country. Gaibandha is one of the main natural disaster affected districts of the northern area. Different types of disasters like cyclone, flood, drought, river erosion, cold wave etc are affecting the district each year and as a result the normal life being hampered and causing losses of properties. Many people after losing their homesteads, livelihood assets and employment are going out to different districts in search of shelter and employment and forced to live in inhuman condition. The people of Bangladesh and the Government have been facing these disasters with great success and skill which is being praised by the people of the world and is also considered to be replicable. The economy of Bangladesh which has been facing huge losses due to the disaster in each year and if it can be reduced in that cases the country can be elevated to a developed country soon in the world. With this objective the Ministry of Disaster and Relief, Government of Bangladesh under the Comprehensive Disaster Management Programme (CDMP) has initiated the programme of preparing Disaster Management Plan at District and Upazila level with the participation of all concerned. The Ministry of Disaster and Relief of the Government which has undertaken this wide initiative and the programme is praiseworthy. At the same time the cooperation being provided by the development partners like UK Aid, European Union, Norwegian Embassy, Swiss Embassy, Australian Aid and UNDP is also praiseworthy.

1.4.3 Weather and Climate
Rainfall Trends:
Generally the incidence of rainfall is normal. But it is much more in the rainy season than any
other time. During the summer sometimes there is rainfall, norwester, cyclone and sometimes
hailstorms also. But there is no rainfall at all during the winter. Sometimes there is no rainfall
during the spring and has to face drought in the area. As a result the rivers, canals, drains, beels and
ponds become dry which hampers agriculture activities and affects crops and trees much. But there
should be a research whether this change indicates the effects of climate change.The time of
monsoon season is lagging behind due to the change of rainfall trends and as such there is some
change in the agricultural management system, cost of production goes high and production goes
down. At the same time the crops attacked with insects and there is more spread of many crop
diseases. The tendency of more occurrence of untimely rainfall is being observed. Water logging
created due to more rainfall during the Bangla months of Aswin-Agrahayan. Besides more rainfall
sometimes occur during the winter which hampers the agriculture and creates a bad impact on the
life and livelihood of the people.
Temparature

During summer, rainy season, autumn and dewy season the highest temperature generally ranges
from 24-25 dgree and the lowest temperature ranges from 34-36 dgree. During winter and spring
the highest temperature generally ranges from 28-30 dgree and the lowest temperature ranges
from 8 -10 dgree.The temparature has increased to some extent comparing the previous time. On
the other hand some times during winter the temperature goes down to 405 degree and cold wave
starts.As a result human death occurs and crop damages.
Under ground water level

The water level in Palashbari Upazila is not the same in all the Unions. Some where it is found nder 25-30 ft. and some where it is found under 35-40 ft. There is no big change observed in this regard because previously the water level was found under 20-30 ft. and some where it was found under 30- 35 ft. But during the dry season the drinking water level some where goes down to 85-90 ft. and some where to 155-160 ft. During the time the flow of water from the shallow machine and the tube wells also goes down. In some cases the flow of waters stopped dead. In this situation there occurs a heavy crisis of irrigation and drinking water during thedry season. So the people of the area suffers from the crisis of water for drinking and other household works. 1.4.4 Others:

DREAM, Bangladesh Page 32 Chapter - Two: Disaster, Calamity and Endangerment
2.1 Overall History of Disaster :
Palashbari Upazila of Gaibandha District is a disaster prone area. It has to face one or two natural
disasters in every year. The normal livelihood of the people is endangered and properties are
massively damaged by different calamities including cold wave, flood, drought, norwester etc. A
vast area of the Upazila including the town is affected by the rivers flowing within the Upazila due
to inundation of both sides of the river banks during the rainy season and also due to lack of
navigability of the rivers. Besides the houses in the low lying areas of the Upazila suffers from
water logging problem for heavy rainfall in the rainy seasons due to absence of proper drainage
system which last for one month. The siltation of the rivers becoming serious day by day and the
intensity of flood and water logging is also increasing.
The main calamities of Palashbari Upazilaare flood, Norwester, Cyclone, Drought, Cold Wave etc.
Flood occurs duribg the Bengali months of Ashar, Shrabonm Bhadra and Aswin. The heavy rainfall
also occurs due to natural cause. The norwester occurs during the months of Baishak and Jaistha
and cold wave during Poush-Magh, and drought occurs during the months of Falgun, Chaitra and
Boishak.The highest flood water level was 8-10 ft. in the past.The entire area flooded within 3-5
days.The flood water lasted for 25-30 days.The flood water, cyclonic storm and norwester crossed
the area generally from the south-west and north-east direction.
The loss and damages was about Tk.18 lac by cold wave, about Tk.12 lac by drought, about Tk.10
lac by norwester and about Tk.8 lac by flood.
Houses of the people destroyed, crops damaged, movement of people become difficult, causes
death of the people, livestock, created crisis of safe water, people become shelterless and
institutions damaged. Flood in 2005 and 2008, Norwester in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011
and 2012, Drought in 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 and Cold wave in 2003, 2004,
2009, 2011 and 2012. The disaster caused damage of the houses of the people, damaged
infrastructure, crops, created difficulties in the movement of the people, caused death of the people,
livestock, created crisis of safe water and people became shelterless

Priorities
DREAM, Bangladesh Page 33 2.3 Different calamities and its present and future pictures:

1. Cold Wave: Cold wave is one of the main disaster in Palashbari Upazila Crops, livestocks,
trees and livelihood of the people especillay the old, children, pregnant women and lactating mothers had to suffer much due to coldwave and even people. The cold waves in the years 2003, 2004, 2009, 2011 and 2012 caused massive damages in the area. Crops of about 210 acres of land were also damaged. 2. Drought: Sometimes drought occurs in Palashbari Upazila which turns the situation acute. It
generally occurs during the Bangla months of Falgun, Chaitra and Boishak, No rainfall occurs due to drought, the temperature increases, the sufferings of the people increases, crops damaged, the canals and beels become dry and even causes death to people. The droughts in the years 2003, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013 caused massive damages in the area. 3. Norwester: Sometimes norwester occurs in Palashbari Upazila from time to time. It generally
occurs during the Bangla months of Boishak and Jaistha. As a result agriculture crops, houses, roads, educational institutions and trees are massively affected in the area. The norwesters in the years 2003, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012 caused massive damages in the area. 4. Flood: Palashbari Upazila is a widely flood affected area. The flood occurs during the Bangla
months of Ashar, Shrabon, Bhadra and Ashwin. As result agriculture, crops, infrastructure, trees, housing, fishery, education, communication etc. sectors are massively affected in the area. No crops could be cultivated in the land due to siltation of sand in the cultivable lands. The flood is a regular incidence in the area but the floods in 2005, 2007 and 2008 were massive. 5. River Erosion: The incidence of river erosion in Palashbari is less. But some portion of
Kishorgari and Hossainpur Unions are affected due to river erosion. This generally occurs during the Bengali months from Ashar to Bhadra. As a result agricultural crops, houses, roads engulfed by river erosion. People become shelterless and the environment is affected. In order divert the river flow direction Govt. should undertake construction of embankment, dredging of rivers and construct T-embankment to reduce the river flow during flood otherwise a massive damage will cause in the area and cultivated lands will be flooded away.
2.4 Endangerment and Capacity
Endangerment means the prevailing material, socio-economic and environmental situation which
indicates the possible loss and damages by disaster which people unable to face. Capacity means an
overall situation or a process created through the coordination of natural, social, economic,
environmental etc. aspects which the people or any organization/institution through utilizing the
available resources can face strongly the unfavorable disaster situation and try to reduce the effect
of the havoc of disaster.

Calamities

Analysis of the Calendar:
In which months of the year the calamities occur in the area and in which months its impact is high
or low has been shown by diagram in the above seasonal calendar. It has come out through the
discussion with the participants as part of the Pre-CRA activity.
 Water logging and flood occurs due to silation of soil in the river. The rivers are being gradually filled up with huge quantity of alluvial soil. The rivers are filled up with soil during the months from April to October.  Cyclone is a dangerous calamity. The cyclone damages houses, communication system and trees massively. It occurs generally in between from the mid March to mid May and in between from the mid September to mid December  Drought is one of the calamities which occur in Palashbari Upazila. Many crops of the area are damaged for want of irrigation due to drought. On the other hand the lands cultivated somehow the production is low due to want of adequate waer supply. Again there is acute crisis of drinking water due to drying up of water of the ponds and for going down the ground water level. The drought occurs in the area during the months from June to April.
2.10 Seasonal Calendar of Livelihood


Farmers:
The farmers become busy in Boro plantation from the Bengali month of Jaishtha to
Ashar and they remain jobless during the months of Shrabon, Bhadra, Ashwin. They have to
remain busy from mid Kartik to Agrayhan for harvesting and again become busy in Magh and
Phalgun for IRRI plantation.

Fishermen:
Fish cultivation starts in the Bengali months of Jaishtha and Ashar. There is fear of
flood in the months of Shrabon and Bhadra and to take prior preparation for protection of the fishes
from flood. The water level goes down in the months of Poush and Magh and as a result there is
less growth of the fishes and has to sell the fishes within short time. It hampers the livelihood of
the fishermen.
DREAM, Bangladesh Page 41 Day labor: The farmers have to remain jobless till the month of Kartik after engaging them in IRRI
harvesting in the months of Jaistha and Ashar. As such they have to migrate from the Upazila to
other places for four months in search of jobs.
Businessmen: The business people run their businesses well in six months (Boishak, Jaishtha,
Ashar, Kartik, Agrayhan and Poush) but their sell proceeds come down during the rest six months
as the people of the area become jobless and their income level goesdown.

Flood: Agricultural crops damaged hugely due to flood. The people living on agriculture only are
affected financially. Additional money is required for repair of the damaged kutcha houses of the
poor farmers and day laborers. There is great difficulty on their part to manage this money. A large
number of fishes and fingerlings drain out from the ponds due to flood and the fishermen are
affected much. The day labors forced to remain jobless due to flood and have to suffer from
monetary crisis. The businessmen suffer from losses due to the damage of business
products/materials by floods. Besides sell of products go down and they have to suffer from losses.
River erosion: Houses including cultivated land, roads, and different institutions like schools
engulfed by the rivers due to river erosion. The poor people become asset less by losing their
houses and lands. The Govt. has also to loss financially because the drowned institutions have to
be rebuilt by the Govt. considering suffering of the people.
Cold wave: The crops are damaged by cold wave. As such the farmers suffer from monetary crisis.
Besides during this time the day laborers do not find any job and cannot work for severe cold. As a
result they also have to suffer from monetary crisis.

Drought:
Trees, standing crops including vegetables are damaged due to drought. As such
everybody suffers from financial problem.
Norwester: Houses, trees, including crops are destroyed due to norwester and as such damaged
houses have to be repaired and new houses to be constructed. Different Govt. and non-govt.
infrastructures have to be reconstructed.

The general situation which is observed after reviewing the basic inputs (air temperature, air
pressure, air flow direction, air speed, air humidity, amount of clouds, types of clouds, and rainfall)
is considered to be weather and climate of a place or region. The rays of the sun are absorbed by the
earth. This ray is then reflected in the space. This is the system of the nature. The hindrance thus
created in this process is called climate change.
How the following sectors are affected by climate change are mentioned below:
Description
In future repeated early cold wave, drought, flood, river erosion, norwester etc. might affect the Upazila due to climate change and its intensity might also increase. As such there is every possibility of affecting the agriculture sector. During this period there may be wide crisis of animal fodder, opportunity of job for the day labours may be reduced and there may be crisis in the business operation. The possible amount of damages and losses that may cause Unionwise due to climate change are as follows:  In case of cold wave occurs in Palashbari Upazila, the cultivation of 10254 acres of Aman paddy, 84 acres of jute, 248 acres of vegetables, 325 acres of maize, seedling 752 varities of fruit trees like mango, guava, amra, olive, lichi, kamranga etc. including 852 herbal trees will be affected massively of 42,984 acres of the 09 Unions. 351 animal-birds may die, fishes of 10 ponds may be affected.
