Senior Program Associate
Bengal Institute Team
While completing her Master of Science in Geography and Environment at Jahangirnagar University, Afifa worked in a Disaster Risk Reduction Program in the coastal area. During her studies, her focus was to learn the dynamic hydrological system of Bangladesh, especially the flow-dynamics of transboundary rivers, and the geopolitical aspects associated with the river-water availability across the delta. She further went ahead to learn the impact of climate change, adaptation, and climate resilient agricultural activities in the area of Brahmaputra-Tista river basin that is dominantly influenced by two major transboundary rivers. Currently, she is working as Program Associate at Bengal Institute and provides technical and editorial support to both research and publication initiatives.
