Abstract
  • Inspired by the export boom developing countries got involved in multiple export earning activities. However shrimp exports have become quite lucrative activities for many developing countries including Bangladesh. Shrimp occupies a good chunk of our export income. In calculating the return from shrimp exports the usual practice is the nominal monetary contribution recording ignoring the social and environmental externalities and other costs. This paper considers a case of a costal district in the southern part of Bangladesh adjacent to the World Heritage Site, Sundarban, where shrimp culture activities are the most popular economic activities of the people. It considers the social and environmental impacts of this practice and try to calculate the net contribution using total economic valuation technique. The primary inputs are survey of two villages in Khulna district. It has been revealed that the environmental costs are quite heavy in terms of biodiversity loss, land pattern change and salinity. Suggestions include incorporation of such impacts before giving institutional financial supports in different form.
