Coping and resilience in perennial floods of Bangladesh

Dr Tulshi Kumar Das

This paper investigates into the coping mechanisms that the flood-affected people adopt in order to survive. It is based on an empirical study of low lying land of eastern part of Bangladesh prone to frequent flash floods that forces some of them to migrate to urban centres while others continue to remain or take up shorter relocation as survival mode and return. The paper presents an exploration of the resilience process that the people go through and the process of facing the challenges with courage and building up their confidence. Relevant review of literature on this issue of people’s struggle; and their coping mechanisms of the affected people allows us to introduce the intertwined concepts of coping and resilience, with its multifaceted dimensions.
