 Impacts of sea level rise on Bangladesh were assessed using secondary sources. The study revealed that a one meter sea level rise will affect the vast coastal area and flood plain zone of Bangladesh. Both livelihood options of coastal communities and the natural environment of the coastal zone will be affected by the anticipated sea level rise. It will also affect national and food security of thecountry. The Sundarbans, the most important ecosystem of the country will be totally lost with onemetre rise in sea level. Mitigation and adaptation are two options to minimize the impacts. Acombined effort of Bangladesh Government, Bangladesh’s people and International communities isemerge need to survive.
 Key words:
Sea level rise, Bangladesh, coastal zone, impacts, adaptation
