Gaibandha River Erosion Project

Publication date:
Knowledge partner:

Gaibandha is located in Northern Bangladesh at the confluence of the two major rivers, which makes the area vulnerable to floods and river erosion. Frequent disasters, especially floods, make life here much more difficult than in the rest of country, by depriving people of land, employment opportunities and basic service facilities. This video describes a five-year project that aimed to address the development needs of the communities that have been displaced by river erosion and that are living under the threat of more erosion.
