Tailor made to fit UK specifications, this resource explores the physical and human cause of flooding in Bangladesh, including climate change. It then explores the social, economic and environmental impacts of the flooding through the personal accounts of people living by the major rivers and on Bangladesh’s char lands. Examples of a variety of flood management strategies, including the pro and cons of hard and soft engineering, are explored. It also shows how NGO’s are working with flood affected communities to alleviate poverty and reduce their vulnerability to future floods.
