As a result of the dynamics of the water system, there is a need for a wide range of expertise in the Bangladeshi water sector such as integrated water management, coastal management, dredging and land reclamation. Flooding is a major problem in Bangladesh. High sedimentation rates also present a great challenge to maintain the navigability and safe water levels in the water systems. Climate change, urbanisation and intensifying industrial activities further stress the needs for sustainable water management solutions and technologies. Improving the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) condition remains highly important in Bangladesh, in both rural and urban areas.
