Tiger and Human Conflict ( Multimedia News )

The Conflict between tiger and human has to a new level in the mangrove forest of the Bangladesh.Thirty people were killed by tigers last year and three tigers by people. Since Cyclone Sidr [November 2007] and Cyclone Aila [May 2009], when 1,000 people who lived near to the water had their homes flooded and were forced to move inland. Hungry people now risk facing a tiger attack everyday when they go into the forest looking for food. On February 6 in southern Sundarban. A Bengal tiger had just killed a 40-year-old woodcutter called Mabud, deep in the mangrove forest when he was collecting firewood in the area of Char-shesher. One villager told me ‘We enter the jungle searching for food and the tiger kills us . . . the tiger comes to our village, we kill the tiger’.

I took these photos on February 6 in southern Sundbaran . A Bengal tiger had just killed a 40-year-old woodcutter called Mabud, deep in the mangrove forest when he was collecting firewood in the area of Char-Shesher. One of his fellow woodcutters, Abul Sarder, told me that five of them entered the jungle to collect firewood and suddenly a tiger attacked them. ‘When we had escaped we realised that Mabud had not. We tried to save him but failed to fight off the tiger.’

World Bank and IMF have sounded a larger alarm push 100 million people in low-income countries deeper into poverty.Bangladesh is a country that stands to be one of the first to suffer from global climate change. As Dr. Atiq Rahman of the Bangladesh Center for Advanced Studies says: “Bangladesh is a resilient country. We have shown the world that we can adapt, that we can confront things, that we are not just passive victims of disasters.”

The IPCC warns of devastating floods, drought, extreme weather, hunger, and disease across the world in decades to come. The Bay of Bengal regularly serves catastrophic cyclones and floods. With few natural resources, bursting cities and poor infrastructure, the small nation is certainly beset with troubles both natural and manmade. But Bangladesh may yet become our best example for how both big and small adoptions can make a difference for people to survive on a warming planet.

 Bangladesh already accelerates it and now a glimpse of everyone’s future.Photojournalist Monirul Alam  as an eyewitness ,he covered in his own country , who struggle against nature .

The Cancún climate talks have concluded. Global talks on climate change set up a new fund to manage billion of dollars in aid to poor nations in a hard-fought packages urging cuts in industrial emission. Turning the page a year after the chaotic climate summit in Copenhagen, more than 190 countries meeting in Mexico kept ambitions in check and made headway on sticking points instead of seeking a wide-ranging treaty.

Bangladesh faces all of that already, and climate change will accelerate it. Once a byword for backwardness, Bangladesh is now a glimpse of everyone’s future.
