  This study investigates the price mechanism of demand function to structure the liberalized tariff system on vegetable oil market and documents the impact on quantity, revenue and welfare gains of the world economy in a monopolistic setting. We shed light on close trading partners between palm and soybean oil markets among the exporting and importing countries and explore the effects by utilizing spatial equilibrium modeling approach to see the major beneficiaries in the price mechanism game. Our assessment provides quantitative measures of the economic effects which helps to weigh the benefits and impacts by comparing liberalized tariff and non-reform system. Findings from this study indicate that price and trade mechanism improve the welfare gains and highlight the importance of moving toward an effective price mechanism and liberated tariff system in the global vegetable oil market. The findings of this analysis resolve the debate on the benefits of a liberated tariff system on vegetable oil markets neglecting beneficiaries’ trade barriers dispute.

  Background: Vibration of economy of many agriculture-based countries likewise Bangladesh sometime greatly relies on foreign remittance gained through exporting the Giant Freshwater Prawn (GFP). Methodology: Manifold constraints restrict the furthering and sustainable growth of this sector. The main constraints that contribute slowing the progress include: Lack of upgraded production technology, absence of well-timed international marketing policy and strategy, increased production cost developed through manual operations of different production and distribution circles. Results: This study advocates that with an assurance of implementation of a realistic pattern, the sustainably viable sector would be able to contribute in fostering the sustainable economic growth. In order to map the gaps, sustainability challenge is framed by looking at the possible enhancement and the existing position compared to what the state provided in the last two-three decades to the prawn farming. Conclusion: This study also provides a legislative direction to boost the marketing strategy, process for production, quality assurance, traceability and other relevant requirements that policy-maker of the sector may consider as a whole.

  The national policy of developing countries is fundamentally suffered for climate change related research of animal health impacts, lack of policy alteration in emergency situations and lack of scenario research for impacts on ecosystem, distant animal health forecast, disease spread and migration. This study brings together the climate change issue and impacts on animal health and economy and it’s affecting factors to propose more effective strategies to control this social issue. Here, we emphasize prioritizing policy approaches of knowing how preferences and climate may change in the distant future and selection of policy alternatives over which impacts are most relevant. The sound effective policy can be developed in the developing economy when there is an inter-linkage within each principal component such as on (a) national priorities, (b) specific research on climatic animal health impacts, (c) scenario research of climate change in distant future, (d) alternative policy alteration in natural disaster and emergency and (e) global outbreak of animal health impacts. This study attempts to investigate the inter-linkage of these indications and the possible planning lacking and concern focusing on climate change on animal health factors. The experiences from this study can be used for climate change related animal health impacts and potential economic policy in developing countries.

  The current situation of climate change related to animal health impacts, overall awareness, mapping of livestock and national policy in these regards are needed an especial scholarly attention in Bangladesh. The national policy primarily fails to deal with the impacts of climate change on animal health and its danger since it is virtually invisible than the others harming events such as natural disasters. Therefore, this study addresses some issues generated through an analysis of animal health and veterinary facilities in coping with the climate change and also answer on how a sound effective policy can develop by overcoming the issue. This study focuses the lack of inter-linkage of national policy and planning including the shortcomings of the current veterinary education system to bring together the climate change issue and impacts on animal health. The experiences of this study may utilize for climate change related animal health impacts and a way forward for potential veterinary policy in Bangladesh.

  Within a process of counter arguments and scope, this study aimed to understand the INSHORE economic benefit and growth through the proper uses of the utility and scope of fisheries and livestock in Bangladesh. The specific evidence together with analytical justification is used to fig out the factors that are responsible in behind the lacking to the fisheries and livestock industry; however, a lot of possible prospects can be visualized by the scientific probable rationality. Therefore, we have taken the initiatives by this study to find out the core problems and challenges and a way forward to overcome the problem. Here, we have introduced a sound framework and guideline to the concerned body and policy makers (MOFL) in Bangladesh. Our piece of work would be a path for policy makers in the fisheries and livestock sectors and a trail for donor agencies to find out the lacks that responsible for the misleading design of projects and objectives and unsuccessful outcomes.

  To provide an acceptable adaptation measures for the resilience to climate change, this study explores the challenges developed through rapid climate changes to livestock that Bangladesh has been experiencing. International discourses on climate change testify that Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries. Moreover, the damage of climate change in this country is significantly spontaneous and intensifying which is considered as one of the biggest challenges in designing the future strategies and their implementation. Being a developing nation, Bangladesh is less able to face the challenges caused through climate change and global warning due to the financial constraint in prioritizing budgetary allocation in a number of emergency and urgent preferences. Livestock sector in Bangladesh alongside agriculture is considered as the backbone of Bangladesh economy. Although, county encounters crucial financial hardship, denying the need of long-term planning and appropriate implementation procedure to the capacity building for the livestock sectors would cost more setbacks ultimately. Therefore, this study suggests some effective guideline for policy option on adaptation and mitigation the climate hazards for the wellbeing of livestock in Bangladesh.

  Global experience confirms that ‘family business concept’ was the domain in the establishment of fisheries sector. Apprenticeship of family inheritance was only the training provision available for the fishermen earlier. While fishermen used to receive a little amount of training through family apprenticeship, light of education to become a qualified citizen for modern world was unreachable to them. Things have incredibly or marginally been changed in a few countries where public policy took necessary parameters in order to institutionalize this sector aligning with the long term developmental vision and mission of the state. However, most of the countries still follow the orthodox model since professionals working with this sector are less capable to put forward their voices in the elite podium where public policy of a country is designed and constitutionalized. Maldives is country where more than 80% of the population are directly and indirectly or by hobby are involved with the fisheries sector providing a major local contribution towards Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Despite this contribution, the sector experiences significant amount of shortfalls. The purpose of this study is to map and identify those shortfalls in order to offer an elucidation.

  Within a method of a cross-sectional survey that adopts following as key variable i.e., demographic, socio-economic and health-care factors, this study aimed to understand early childhood mortality rate and probable reasons in Bangladesh. In order to have probable rationality “logistic regression” of “multivariate statistical” technique is used to figure out the factors that are responsible for childhood mortality. The women who were married in the range of ageing 10-49 were asked to provide a complete history about their ‘giving birth’ for the reference period of 5 years. Statistical findings state that the rate of “neonatal”, “infant” and “under five year mortality” is, respectively 286, 461 and 525. Multi-examined statistical investigations sum up that “preceding birth interval”, “birth order” and “number of living children” are significantly affect early childhood mortality. In addition, with the functionality of socio-economy, mother’s education, source of drinking water and hygienic sanitation have also a significant impact on the rate of children morality. Moreover, exposures to mass media, healthcare facilities have positive impact. Results also indicate that mothers who are more aware about healthcare are likely to be less mortality experience than their unaware counterparts.

  The overall current of impact of climate change on public health, its general awareness and mapping of national policy is widely recognized. Nevertheless, some fundamental aspects have also remained underappreciated such as the impact of climatic change on plant biology, impacts of well-being of human in the ecosystem and knowledge-education in exploring the links to pharmacology. Therefore, we aim to address some of these issues linked, particularly feasible links between plant function and human health and present a list of key questions that may help to integrate plant biology into the current paradigm on climate change and human health in the pharmacology. Here, we provide a number of critical examples that range over various health concerns related to plant biology and climate change and focus of their inter-linkage of toxicology, aerobiology, contact dermatitis and pharmacology in exploring the system knowledge in plant biology. As the links among climate change, plant biology and public health that remain underappreciated by both plant scientists and health care providers; therefore, we present the degree of health risk posed by climate change and way forward to minimize adverse impacts.

  Old fashioned Community Participation (CP) in Healthcare and Family Planning Programs (HFPPs) requires a number of revisions in order to confront the challenges of 21st century. Fundamentally operating any large project likewise HFPPs requires a mammoth budget. It is thus important to have some financial gains and savings for a state from the relevant areas by introducing a newer project. Evidences assert that HFPPs consumes a higher endowment without reducing the pharmaceutical cost in the respective area. Thus, in such situations, state faces financial constraints by introducing supplementary or a parallel projects. Considering this issue as research problem, this study was conducted in Bangladesh to understand the impact of community participation on HFPPs. An analytical justification is used to discover the factors that are causing the problems for existing HFPPs. Observation also notes that HFPPs fails in plummeting pharmaceutical service costing in the respective area. It rather works as marketing tool for pharmaceutical business. Additional findings indicate that socio-economic condition, basic knowledge and fundamental awareness are essential in receiving the extended benefit. In addition to these, integration of CP and HFPPs may overcome the problems of the gap between demand and available resources for meeting the extensive healthcare that a country needs. However, it is also somehow constrained because of inadequate education and knowledge in the respective area of the rural population who are the key dependents on HFPPs. Therefore, we emphasize both on the redesigning of existing HFPPs and education attainment for the long term benefits. Our study is witness to support extensive CP in existing HFPPs and advocate why current system needs to be redesigned including the plummeting pharmaceutical service costing in the way forward for Bangladesh.

  Treatment of male infertility is one of the challenging tasks in developing nation given the nature of tradition and superstation of ‘professed confidentiality’. Traditionally, the issue of human infertility is mainly considered ‘infertility in women’ which is a mistaken and orthodox attitude. Due to a number of constraints especially collecting data, research in this area is often ignored. However, since it is a vital area to investigate in order to mapping the scenario and to provide policy guidance especially for awareness and for further course of actions of both governmental and institutional as well as family levels, we took an initiative to work at this area using the small amount of data available at Infertility Treatment and Research Centre (ITRC), in Bangladesh. Since July 2004 about 9000 couples have been recorded and evaluated at the ITRC. Three semen analyses have been made with an interval of one week. Special care was taken for collection, preservation and analysis in respect of macroscopic, microscopic and biochemical analysis. Repeated microscopic examination has been made in some cases to avoid errors. The fructose test was done for azoospermic in every sample at ITRC laboratory. Our study indicates that in 60% cases, male are responsible for Infertility either fully or partially. Of them 40% were azoospermia 34% were oligospermic and the rest 5% were asthenospermia and teratospermia 1% case was due to non descendent and mal development of testes rest per cent was design as unexplained infertility. This paper suggests that awareness on male infertility helps more than having medical treatment with pharmacological aid and supplement.

  Even though geographical location and sub-tropical weather pattern of Bangladesh are favorable to agro-businesses and but until recently it has been unable to utilize the potential by the inshore economic growth and development of agricultural sub-sectors and industries for offshore markets. Therefore, this study aimed to understand the way of offshore economic benefit by proper employing the scope of fisheries and livestock industry’s in Bangladesh. The specific justification is used to figure out the factors that are responsible in the drawbacks of offshore benefits. This study helps to understand the core problems and challenges and a way forward to overcome the problems by the subject to current research effort and commercial value. Here, this study has introduced enhanced framework of strategies and guidelines to the concerned body and policy makers in Bangladesh. The indications from the study for the offshore economic benefit would be a helpful, particularly developing country like Bangladesh and elsewhere.

  This research focuses the climate change concerns for livestock feeding management in Bangladesh as it causes strange behavior and variation of cattle diets and feed shortages in the last two decades. It is obvious from the recent literature that Bangladesh is one of the most climate change vulnerable country of the world to climate change. It causes cattle feed shortages, modification in major production of yields, alteration in a variety composition of rangeland and edifying variety of cattle feed setback. The climate change concern to cattle feed in Bangladesh are now real and need to overcome the problems by the subject to current research effort and value. Therefore, in this study specific justification is used to figure out the factors that are responsible and discussed the national lacking, required action, limitation and possible alternative options. Moreover, following on the national lacking, required action and limitations, this study incorporated a framework of approach and strategies for the policy makers of Bangladesh.
