Bungladesh May Face Drastic Challenges In Future Due To Environmental Changes
The number of individuals respiring on the globe is going to touch 7 billion figure. But, if you are in Bangladesh, you will feel like the half of the world population has been accommodated in an area equal to the state of Louisiana in USA.The capital of Bangladesh, Dacca is so thickly populated that every park and foot path is the residence of homeless families. The people fond of walk early in the morning puts his feet on man , woman and child when he walks on the foot path or in the park. As soon as life awakes and sun rises, the roads and streets get filled with the crowd of 15 million people. The noise due to traffic jam, beggars, hawkers,and rickshaw drivers feels too hard for hearing. In the suberbs of city along the river there is a vast leveled area distributed in pieces , but if you are searching for a lonely place to rest or think it is impossible, there is no even a single road where you can have a long drive.
It is not astonishing because Bangladesh is one of the most thickly populated countries in the world. Its population is more than Russia which is 120 times larger in area than Bangladesh. This is a country of 164 million people where no one can be found alone arithmetically. Imagine what would be the condition in 2050 when its population will reach to 220 million and an important part of it will come under water permanently. In future the population growth though birth rate has been decreased will increase in millions during next decades, secondly due to global climatic changes due which the sea level will increase till 2100, this future map and the scene show that 30 million people living on eastern coast will be homeless. They will either increase the thickness of already thickly populated country or will be forced to migrate. According to a careful estimate due to the global climatic changes nearly 250 million people will migrate from their countries till the mid of the current century. Majority of these people will be from poor and backward countries.
