Bangladesh is traversed by a network of wide rivers. Many people live on small islands in these river deltas, with the poorest of them settling near the river banks. Since the effects of climate change present particularly strongly in Bangladesh, the resulting regular floods not only threaten numerous lives but also destroy fields and gardens in which food is cultivated. Despite constant economic improvements and declining poverty and hunger rates, about 11% of people in Bangladesh are undernourished. Cox's Bazar in southern Bangladesh is home to the world's largest refugee camp, where one million Rohingya are seeking shelter from the violence in their home country of Myanmar. Living conditions are very difficult: there is a lack of shelter, clean water, food and hygiene products.
