Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely-populated nations. Much of the country is a low-lying river delta that floods annually during the monsoon season and is vulnerable to erosion and extreme weather. Caritas Australia is working in Bangladesh to improve health care for mothers and their babies, advance women’s rights, and help with urgent environmental problems.

Unicef

Bangladesh’s socio-cultural environment contains pervasive gender discrimination, so girls and women face many obstacles to their development. Girls are often considered to be financial burdens on their family, and from the time of birth, they receive less investment in their health, care and education.

World Economic Forum

        

Many see Bangladesh as a 'market’ of over 30 million middle- and affluent-class people and a ‘development miracle’. To me, our strengths are the societal values and peoples’ trust in Bangladesh.

Environmental Justice Foundation

Worldwide, climate change is destroying livelihoods, infrastructure and communities, forcing people from their homes, towns and even countries. In 2016 alone, extreme weather-related disasters displaced around 23.5 million people. This does not include the people forced to flee their homes as a consequence of slow-onset environmental degradation, such as droughts, sea level rise and melting permafrost. Bangladesh is on the frontline of these impacts.

UN Habitat

UN-Habitat has been facilitating national government, city authorities and people in Bangladesh to reduce inequality, promote living standards of urban poor communities to achieve SDGs and implementing New Urban Agenda.

The World Bank

Every year Bangladesh loses about $6.5 billion, or about 3.4 percent of its 2015 GDP, which may be caused by pollution and environmental degradation in urban areas. A new World Bank report shows that Bangladesh is among the countries that are most affected by pollution. The country urgently needs to take strong measures to prevent environmental degradation and pollution.
