Abstract "Climate change is forcing vulnerable communities in developing countries to adapt to unprecedented climate stress. Developing countries like Bangladesh is especially vulnerable to climate change because of their geographic exposure; northern part of Bangladesh is gradually going to be desert with continued drought. At the same time, the southern part of Bangladesh is being threatened by cyclone and high tidal wave sinks of the saline water of sea. Due to limited adaptive capacities as well as lack of proper social protection initiatives, vulnerable communities are forced to migrate themselves in urban areas for better livelihood. This in turn poses multiple threats to economic growth and wider poverty reduction. Main focus of this paper is to find out the extent of the two Government initiated social protection schemes (Vulnerable Group Development and Food for Work) to reduce climate forced migration."
