BD Institute of Int'l & Strategic Studies

A seminar on "Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100" organised by Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies (BIISS) in cooperation with General Economic Division (GED) was held at the auditorium of BIISS in the city.  In order to make development sustainable and more productive, the process for preparing Bangladesh Delta Plan (BDP) is progressing incorporating all development aspects, water and development experts said in the programme held on the ninth instant. Bangladesh Delta Plan should be prepared considering its own perspective as the country has unique and complex geographical characters, they told. The speakers said as Bangladesh is the world's largest delta, it needs to develop a delta plan incorporating various environmental and developmental aspects aiming to ensure sustainable economic growth through long-term development visions. Bangladesh Delta Plan-2100 is being prepared by integrating delta-related sectors and all geographic regions of the country for developing a holistic plan, they added. "Bangladesh has three river basins - Brahmaputra, Ganges and Meghna. Very few countries of the world has such big river basins," they said emphasizing the need for a better water management system. The function was addressed, among others, by Water Resources Minister Barrister Anisul Islam Mahmud, Director General of BIISS Major General AKM Abdur Rahman, Chairman of Board of Governors of BIISS Munshi Faiz Ahmed and Vice -Chancellor of University of Asia Pacific Dr Jamilur Reza Chowdhury.
