OCHA Regional Office for Asia Pacific BANGLADESH: Natural Hazard Risks

The bar charts show the degree of exposure to natural hazards and the percentage of area affected (per country). Tsunami and storm suges are a threat to coastal regions, particularly gulfs, bays, and estuaries. The flood hazard results from riverfloods and torrential rain. The hazard of dryness and drought is caused by major deviations from the normal amounts of precipitation. The frost hazard depends on the elevation and the latitude.
