It is being shaped by a complex pattern of interactions between phenomena as the discharge of water, the sediment load, tidal forces and estuarine circulation. This leads to a permanent process of formation and erosion of land and, indeed, to moving coastlines. It is a unique environment, not seen at this scale in any other part of the world.

Bangladesh has shown a lot of promise and resilience by pushing ahead with the national development agenda, reflected in declining poverty and rising economic growth. However, events over the past 12 months suggest that the country’s macroeconomy was under strain. It is therefore imperative that the government should take quick actions to correct the situation. While, the restoration of macroeconomic balance is an immediate priority, Bangladesh continues to remain a low income developing economy with a substantial long-term development agenda.
