  • COASTS CASE STUDY: coping with flooding in Bangladesh
    • Bangladesh is an LEDC. The land is densely populated.
    • Most of the land forms a delta from three main rivers - Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna.
    • Bangladesh is less than 1 metre above sea level. The low-lying land means it is easily flooded from the coastal waters.
    • Advantages of living in Bangladesh: >rice is grown >the flat floodplains of the delta are very fertile
    • Disadvantages of living in Bangladesh: >the low lying islands are very vulnerable. They get flooded easily. It is difficult to protect them. >there are poor communications, so it is difficult to get flood warnings out.
