Short Description

Imagine a river delta so large that it covers one-third of an entire country! This is Bangladesh, through which the ancient Ganges River flows. In fact, Bangladesh is a nation of rivers. The country has very fertile farmland, but is also prone to horrific flooding of epic proportions. The number of displaced people in Bangladesh is huge because of the extreme river flooding, but the country is working on a flood action plan that includes a stone, cobble, and earthen embankment 4,694 miles (7,555 km) long and almost 23 feet (7 m) high. Learn about how Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus’s microfinance concept is helping reduce poverty, and learn about community educational centers called ganokendras. This book explains Bangladesh’s problems and outlines its hopes for the future. Everything you need to know about this very interesting nation, its people, and its culture is in this book. The Asian Countries Today series provides information on some of the most important countries in Asia. Every book describes the history, geography, economy, culture, and relationship the country has with its neighbors. Furthermore, the series will encourage, inspire, and motivate the young reader to explore this fascinating subject in more depth.
