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. With 1,100 residents per square kilometre, i.e. almost five times as many as in Germany, the country is one of the most densely populated countries of the world. Despite constant economic improvements, the growing population is suffering from hunger. Although rates of poverty and hunger have fallen significantly, 25 percent of people still do not have enough to eat according to the UN World Food Programme (WFP).
