Abstract

Impact Analysis of Island Erosion and the Changing Pattern of Livelihood, a Case Study of Ghoramara

Ina Dhar Roy Dasgupta, Tapati Banerjee Bhadra and Atanu Saha

The paper is an attempt to study the land use pattern and the impact of riverine erosion in the Sagar Island of West Bengal. The survey conducted during the fieldwork shows the large scale uprooting of families due to the loss of land. Apart from the loss of a job, search for better education has also led to forced migration. The study concludes that there is a dearth of disaster management and mitigation system at Sagar Island.
