General Features

Most of Banladesh is situated on the deltas of large rivers flowing from the Himalayas. The Ganges unites with the Jamuna (main channel of the Brahmaputra) and later joins the Meghna to eventually empty into the Bay of Bengal. Despite sustained domestic and international efforts to improve economic and demographic prospects, Bangladesh remains poor and overpopulated. Nearly two-thirds of Bangladeshis are employed in the agriculture sector, with rice as the single-most-important product. The Farmers' Voice institute works with farmers at the grass roots level, fostering development from within, and searching for solutions through knowledge exchange, environmental awareness, and gender equality.
