Disaster Management Bureau - Calendar 2002-2003


Bangladesh being an alluvial deltaic plain frequently suffers from devastating natural hazards of which, floods, cyclones with accompanying storm surges, tornadoes, river-bank erosion, drought and earthquakes are the most disastrous to mention. Bangladesh being in close proximity with the Himalayas, the country has a long history of seismic tremors. The colossal losses of lives and properties caused by natural disasters with repeated frequency in short intervals, making of Bangladesh one of the most disaster prone countries in the world, are reflected in this calendar, as a testimony of the seasonal threat to communities.
