The effects of climate change are significant for worldwide. In future, climate will most likely continue to change dramatically. During the last 100 years sea levels has already risen globally. There will be significant impacts on several countries due to sea-level rise. However some countries such as Bangladesh which is settled on a delta will be influenced more tragically because deltas are not suitable places to be settled on as they are subsides each year. Bangladesh is in the top row of the list of countries which will be influenced by sea-level rise. That is why in this study is based on Bangladesh which is the world’s biggest delta and it acquires important agriculture land. The coast of Bangladesh, meets important food requirement of Bangladesh. If sea-levels continue to rise in the future-which likely seems will- people who are living near the coast will be influenced badly. Unfortunately sea-level rise will increase salinization of ground water and that will involve water scarcity in Bangladesh. It seems the sea level rise will mostly influence humans in Bangladesh. This paper shows the impacts of sea level rise in Bangladesh such as salinity intrusion, agriculture and ecosystems. To prevent these impacts some precautions should be taken, some of these are Adaptation and Mitigation
