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.. <br /> Rishilpi Development Project<br />
