dc.description.abstract This detailed study provides the first analysis of social vulnerability across the entire coastal delta within Bangladesh and India. Three main conclusions emerge: 1) there is a cross-shore social vulnerability gradient throughout the delta with more vulnerable people living near the coast 2) non-agricultural development and economic expansion have reduced vulnerability significantly 3) shocks due to major cyclone landfall appear to have increased vulnerability in the impacted areas. Section 1 identifies the gaps in literature; Section 2 provides detailed administrative, demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the study area; Section 3 describes data and methods; Section 4-6 present results, discussion and conclusions. en
