This study finds that the ongoing climate change causes huge displacement for the rural and underserved communities in Bangladesh and that results in a huge increase in both urbanization and migration nationally. The issue of ability to move and adjust in urban communities for the Bangladeshi displaced rural communities become a huge national crisis and severely affects the overall socio-economic development of Bangladesh. Finally, this paper finds strong historical evidence that the triple mobility crisis impacts the overall socio-economic development of Bangladesh negatively between 2007-2017 and continues to affect the development goals. This study recommends evidence-based recommendations to minimize the impacts of the triple mobility crisis and support and assist the affected population more effectively and purposefully.
