Risks of Climate Change at Coastal Tourism in Bangladesh: A Study on Cox’s Bazar
This study is on ‘Risk of climate change at coastal tourism in Bangladesh. The main aim of this
research is to describe the risks associated with climate change that has an impact on tourism. The study uses
primary data collected from the respondents (Domestic, Local and International Tourists) by using various
methods like; observation, survey and questionnaire. This research mainly adopts with close-ended
questionnaire. This study uses Five Point Likert scale to measure the intensity of risk. This research identifies
various types of risk like Rise of sea level, Rise of temperature, Acidic Sea, Damage Property, Damage
infrastructure, Damage Livelihood, Damage environmental resources, Inundation during Storm, Risky Road,
Heat Waves, Coastal Floods, Droughts, Pollution, Leads Powerful Hurricanes, and Allergy. This study also
explores some other risks including Rainstorm, Disrupt Food Supply, Mangrove Deforestation, Saline
Intrusion, Scarcity of Fresh Water, Population Displacement, Water Intrusion, Undermining of Local
Communities, Coastline Erosion, Fish Stocks Inundate, Rough weather, Hot Sunshine with their intensity.
