Salinity: A chain to be assessed

Abstract Salinity intrusion is a major problem, particularly in the coastal area of Bangladesh. This review aims to know the development, present scenario, causes, detection technique, impact and management of salinity intrusion in Bangladesh to assess the salinity chain. Salinity has numerous direct and indirect impacts like hypertension, eclampsia and diarrhoea in humans derived from drinking water, crops, livestock and fish from the affected areas. Salinity affects human life, livelihood, health and well-being and is also closely linked with ecosystems that hamper food production. By decreasing crop, livestock and fish yield, salinity intrusion continuously leads the nation to food insecurity. To overcome salinity intrusion, some management ways are also discussed here.
