Awareness on climate change: perceived physical and psychological impact among the young generation. Least developing country's perspective

Awareness on climate change: perceived physical and psychological impact among the young... Climate change is a crucial issue of global concern. The causes, consequences, and mitigation policies of climate change in developed countries are well researched. However, research regarding climate change awareness and its impact on human health in developing countries is scarce. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the awareness of climate change in aspects of perceived physical and psychological impact among the young generation of Bangladesh. A survey of 263 university students (both public and private) from undergraduate and postgraduate level were involved directly in this research and applied multiple regression analysis. The results indicated young generations are aware of perceived physical impact due to climate change. However, majority portion of the young citizens (in Bangladesh) are unaware of the impact of perceived psychological issues affecting overall individual behaviour (due to the effect of climate change). The findings of this research may leverage the policy makers of developing countries (including NGO's) to develop campaigns targeted towards young citizens to build awareness of the effects due to climate change. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Interdisciplinary Environmental Review Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

Climate change is a crucial issue of global concern. The causes, consequences, and mitigation policies of climate change in developed countries are well researched. However, research regarding climate change awareness and its impact on human health in developing countries is scarce. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the awareness of climate change in aspects of perceived physical and psychological impact among the young generation of Bangladesh. A survey of 263 university students (both public and private) from undergraduate and postgraduate level were involved directly in this research and applied multiple regression analysis. The results indicated young generations are aware of perceived physical impact due to climate change. However, majority portion of the young citizens (in Bangladesh) are unaware of the impact of perceived psychological issues affecting overall individual behaviour (due to the effect of climate change). The findings of this research may leverage the policy makers of developing countries (including NGO's) to develop campaigns targeted towards young citizens to build awareness of the effects due to climate change.
