The Naf River Estuary Like Chakaria Sundarbans, the Naf River Estuary which at one time had luxurious mangrove swamps and inter-tidal mudflats has been subject to negative environmental impacts in recent years owing to the cultivation of shrimps, salt production and seasonal paddy cultivation. During monsoon months, the flood protection embankments protect Dhaka from heavy flooding while making it difficult to flush-out waste water, thereby creating environmental hazard. It was the main waterway for trading. Bangladesh has been formed over tens of thousands of years, composing a very thick layer of sedimentary deposition as the heavily laden rivers slow down in the Bangladesh delta. In absence of the sanitation and infrastructural services, 40% having septic tank and soak pit, 15% using pit latrines and 30% using open latrines. Bangladesh has many priorities, most of them are competing and yet complementary.
Bangladesh has made laudable progress in agricultural development and productivity. For instance, a cyclone that hit in 1970 caused 300,000 deaths and 86. Auto-rickshaw must be restricted in Dhaka city. Cases of children suffering from bronchitis and chronic cough have also shot up in recent years. At present noise level in Dhaka city are estimated ranging from 60 to 100 decibels.
Air and water pollution agents Industrial and municipal wastes pollute Bangladesh rivers and water sources. Life has become difficult for them as they lost their income source. This increases the need for new agricultural lands or increased fertiliser use to make up for lost production. The process of converting agricultural land and mangrove forest into shrimp ponds has adversely affected the soil and water system in the adjoining land, making the entire area sensitive to normal production process. Besides, the coastal zone is the home of the world's largest ecosystem, the Sundarbans mangrove forest. Rubber Industry Chlorides, suspended and dissolved solids, variable pH and high Bod.
Dust pollution is causing many respiratory diseases, including asthma. In parts of old Dhaka, the most densely populated areas of the city, hundreds of legal and illegal welding factories are at work. In both breadth and total annual volume the Padma-Lower Meghna river is the third largest in the world. Unfortunately the wetland habitats are under constant threat from human encroachment and flood control and irrigation schemes. While physical environmental problems merge imperceptibly into development problems, the socio-economic development of the country has been constrained owing to pressures exerted on the total environmental system bringing in disharmony between resource development and utilization. The dumping of the solid wastes is seriously affecting the soil and plants, besides vitiating the air, groundwater and human health. In this article an attempt has been made to identify ten activities representing climate change risk reduction, better environmental governance, working towards sustainable development with an approach for rapid economic growth and institutionalisation of good environmental governance leading to better sustainable development decision making.
These dead fishes gradually get rotten and highly add to the further pollution of the river water. Environment the aggregate of conditions affecting the existence or development of life and nature. The pasur river runs through forests of the Sundarbans and the liquid and solid wastes of the ships passing through this river are thrown into the water are polluting the forest areas; deforestation may result in future. It was over 3 kilometers long and 300-400 feet wide with a reddish- black layer. More importantly, bioaccumulation of metals in fish, crabs and other edible aquatic species, may cause health problems to enter the food chain. Apart from gigantic social problems, the floods invariably lead to the deterioration of the general standard of living of the people and the quality of the environment.
Usually, primary pollutants are directly emitted from a process, such as ash from a volcanic eruption, the carbon monoxide gas from a motor vehicle exhaust or sulfur dioxide released from factories. We, the general people of Bangladesh and other authorities should come forward to save our national asset, our rivers. The introduction of air-conditioned city bus service is an outcome of that initiative. International Journal of Water Resources Development. Environmental pollution Pollution broadly means disruption of man's own environment and refers primarily to the fouling of air, water, and soil by wastes or harmful materials. At its most basic level land use planning is likely to involve zoning and transport infrastructure planning.
Environmental degradation of Bangladesh is also caused due to poverty, over-population and lack of awareness among the people. For solving the problem first we have to identify the nature of the problem. Our content is available to thousands of readers across multiple platforms. Carbon monoxide hampers the growth and mental development of an expected baby. In general, there has been an increased awareness about sound environment and conservation of natural resources among the general people, both in cities and rural areas.
Further as the Green Climate Fund is emerging and Bangladesh must claim huge and significant funding from it. Pollution is often classed as point source or nonpoint source pollution. It is a serious but neglected issue throughout Bangladesh. The grazing must be controlled and forest management should be done properly. Effect of Pollution by Industrial Waste Common problems of air pollution: Various types of severe problems occur due to polluted air.
