A Pure Initiative in Bangladesh

Kazi Amdadul Hoque, one of ESRAG's directors, writes:

Dear Friends:

You know Bangladesh is in a big trap for climatic and climate change affects. The south - west coastal regions of Bangladesh have been experiencing acute shortage of safe drinking water and increase in salinity intrusion in surface and ground water over the past few years. Due to geographical disadvantage, this south-western region is commonly subjected to floods, river erosion and tidal surge but most importantly cyclones and storm surges. It has been estimated that Bangladesh is on the receiving end of about two -fifths of the world’s total impact from storm surges. I spoke in an interview on this recently with Business Times.  You may like to have a look!
