Baridhara is a zone designated for diplomats, high ranking civil and military officials, and politicians in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Most embassies are located in Baridhara and people works in embassies (foreigners) lives here. It is an affluent part of Bangladesh which is evident by local infrastructures. It is also the location of the American International School of Dhaka (most expensive school in Bangladesh).

Bangladesh, which has 156 million people (July 2009 est.) and the area is 144,000 sq km including 10,090 sq km of water, so the total land is 133,910 sq km. Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable places to climate change. As the sea level slowly rises, this nation that is little more than a series of low-lying delta islands amid some of Asia’s mightiest rivers – the Ganges, Jamuna-Brahmaputra and Meghna. Bangladesh has more than 150 rivers cross Bangladesh and almost all rivers flows close to the danger marks during flood time. Experts said that major rivers like Jamuna and Padma could overflow at anytime if heavy rainfall occurs and continues for a week.

With so many huge rivers discharging into the ocean, the country couldn’t build dikes to hold back the sea even if it had the money. And though it has created virtually none of the pollution driving global warming, it is unlikely to receive the international assistance it needs to adapt to conditions created by others said Rahaman.

 Floods have wreaked havoc in Bangladesh throughout history. Major flooding recorded in recent years occurred in: 1987, 1988, and 1998; the most recent one occurred in 2007. According to government statistics, 298 people died and a total of 10,211,780 people were badly affected by it. 56,967 houses were damaged by the floods up to 13 August 2007. In 2004, around 30 million Bangladeshis affected by flood, and more than 40% of the capital city, Dhaka were the underwater.

Weather experts says this year 2009, Bangladesh have a huge probability of over flooding, because of very short winter and global warm.

    I find the comments here extremely disrespectful. I am a teacher at a school who uses this website for him pupils, I am ashamed of who wrote this and if any of the pupils in my school were responsibe for anything like this I would be reporting them for inapropriate behavour and damaging the reputation of this site. The floods in Bangladesh were devastating and my thoughts go to anyone who suffered,
    Many thanks,
    Mr Dickinson.

    go away you sad man. we investigate and raised money for the bangladesh floods. we are constantly coming up with new ways to prevent the devastating floods so no lives are lost and no one is hurt. then you pretend you care when you actually don’t care, if you did you’d be out there helping but you’re not are you? that’s what we thought.
