Final Report Desakota, Part II F1. Bangladesh Case Study.

Abstract

This report discusses the Desakota phenomenon in the Satkhira-Khulna-Jessore-Dhaka corridor in southwest Bangladesh. It is suggested that due to salinity ingress and prolonged waterlogging, people in rural areas have lost their livelihoods and consequently out-migrated to either urban areas in the close vicinity (along the said corridor) or in the urban periphery of Dhaka Metropolitan City.
