  • 1. Satkhira Flood Situation-2011Short briefing onCauses of flood and damage assessment
    Rishilpi Development Project
  • 2. Introduction
    Bangladesh is situated in the south Asian sub-continent. Because of its unique geographical location and topography, it is one of the most flood-prone countries in the world. Approximately 20 to 25% of Bangladesh’s territory is inundated during the monsoon season. Such flooding provides fertile agricultural land and the floodplains in the country are densely populated and intensely utilized. On the other hand, at least 50 to 70% of the country’s territory is exposed to intermittent extreme flooding that has far-reaching negative impacts on the national economy..

  • 3. Country situation
    Heavy monsoon rains have caused several major rivers in Bangladesh to burst their banks, displacing thousands and affecting nearly a million people in all
    Nine river monitoring stations out of 73 operated by the Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre (FFWC) across Bangladesh have reported dangerous water levels and another 19 say more flooding could be imminent.

  • 4. Satkhira : Cause of flood
    The heavy monsoon downpour, and onrush water from upstream (Jessore area) by synchronization of flood-peaks of the major rivers are generally considered to be the main causes of the floods.

  • 5. Satkhira flood : Underlying cause
    Some underlying factors also deserve serious consideration as possible contributors to the recent floods:
    • Climate change and Global warming
    • 6. Change in the base level of the rivers due to
    local sea level rise and subsidence,
    River bed aggradations due to siltation and
    damming of rivers,
