An understanding of the dynamics Of monsoon and flooding in Bangladesh is of crucial importance in the management of its water resources. Of particular importance is the management of the country's floodplains, which would aim to ensure sustainable development of such important sectors as agriculture and fisheries.

Bangladesh is the world's largest delta and also the land of many water bodies. Water dominates life, people and economy of Bangladesh. Water is the most important resource of Bangladesh and the basis of its agricultural productivity. But excess of water is the cause of floods, the greatest natural hazard of Bangladesh. The developmental needs have changed the pattern of water use, given rise to conflict of interests, incorporated new technologies and have raised major environmental concerns. The different aquatic ecosystems have their own characteristics and their production patterns.

The book portrays a development strategy, based on a case study, to mitigate the impact of riverbank erosion disaster by densification of people and their settlements to safer zones. Exploration of this idea involves, in the first instance, to answer why densification is needed and who are the people to be involved in densification addressing issues such as erosion impacts, needs and response, awareness, migration and adjustment behaviour of the vulnerable people. The next focus is to highlight where the densification would take place.
