Bangladesh is dominated by the fertile Ganges (Padma), Brahamaputra (Jamuna) and Meghna delta. The alluvial soil deposited by the rivers when they overflow has created one of the most fertile plains in the world appropriate for agriculture during the non flooded season. Unfortunately, the country is extremely vulnerable to climate change with natural hazards that come from increased rainfall, rising sea levels and tropical cyclones, affecting housing, water, agriculture and food security. with ever less land available, people migrate towards the already over-populated cities in search of shelter and work.
