- 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.
