Bangladesh as an independent country started its journey just over forty-seven years ago.
The country is full of possibilities and challenges.

This book is the culmination of twelve chapters by twenty-four authors.
Their extensive investigation reveals a lot about the social, political and economic context of Bangladesh.
Since its inception, the Bangladesh economy is largely dependent on the agricultural sector.
A good number of authors in this book cover the issue of agricultural sustainability, its achievements, challenges and potentials as well as its extension system.

The technological wave of the global civilization of the twenty-first century is surging in Bangladesh with industrial growth and development.
The historical roles of farmers, fishers and other marginal groups are going through a harsh transformation.
This book covers the changing social and economic structure of these communities.
In recent years, like any other country of the world the climate of Bangladesh has changed a lot.
Many adaptation interventions have been undertaken to mitigate the problem.
