Abstract: Because of its geographic location, low elevation of sea level, high population density, over dependence on natural resource and less ability to cope with the issues, Bangladesh is considered as one of the most vulnerable countries in confronting the challenges of climate change and impact of global warming. Understanding this background, this study enlightens recent climate change experiences, efforts at national and international level, frameworks of policies and national outlines. This study identifies three areas to deal with climate change vision. They are: a) issues; b) impacts; c) ongoing initiatives for strategies and evaluations and policy preparations. Experiences of this study can be useful for the operational tools in dealing with climate change related visions in Bangladesh and elsewhere with similar economic and ecological conditions.
