      In Bangladesh, drought is defined as the period when moisture content of soil is less than the required amount for satisfactory crop growth during the normal crop growing season. However, drought can also occur in areas that lack of moisture in soil and air. Due to drought severity, the estimated yields of.   Drought can be defined as lack or shortage of water for an unusually long period. Drought occurs when there no rain for a long period of time.

      All over the world, Bangladesh is well known as a flood- And cycloneaffected country. But in the recent years the slow onset disaster of drought is more frequent in Bangladesh due to climatic as well as nonclimatic variability. As a consequence, agriculture along with its dependent farmers' livelihoods tremendously experience its adverse by: 2. The drought of /95 in the northwestern districts of Bangladesh led to a million tonne shortfall in rice and wheat production, prompting the FAO and the Thailand-based Asian Disaster.

Book Description. Drought is one of the likely consequences of climate change in many regions of the world. Together with an increased demand for water resources to supply the world's growing population, it represents a potentially disastrous threat to water supplies, agriculture and food production, leading to famine and environmental degradation.
