Abstract:

Land is important in the developing country like Bangladesh as every piece of land can explore the opportunity for the people to achieve their primary needs. Beel Dakatia of south-west Bangladesh is a such region, where about 12,000 ha cultivable land is under waterlogged condition, 100% of the land has become non-cultivable, food deficit has increased by about 53%, average milk production has decreased by 4Kg/cattle/day, people (about 68%) need to collect drinking water from more than 500 yards of their residences and suffer badly from diarrhoea and skin diseases (90% and 98% of the people respectively). The study aims to develop a model to account environmental costs of resource loss in the area through accounting different sectoral costs for the disaster and establishing the relativity of affect intensity compared with non-affected areas. Environmental resource depreciation cost is the consideration for the model rather than calculating ecological costs. The environmental cost accounting is generally a very complex process, which can be generalized by the study model in order to support the decision making process for sustainable environmental management.
