Climate change caused by global warming is having a devastating effect on the world's natural environment. As a result of these changes, sea surface warming is increasing, and the seasonal continuity of the weather is being disrupted.
Disasters of various kinds are on the rise, such as heavy rains and droughts, severe cold spells, severe thunderstorms, rising sea levels, salinity, tidal surges, flash floods, cyclones, etc. As a result, the loss of life and property is increasing. Due to this, crores of rupees are being wasted every year. Rainfall is the main cause of floods in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh has a tropical monsoon climate characterized by a wide seasonal variation of rainfall. It rains only in our river basins due to south-westerly monsoon winds from June to September. Due to that rainfall, the water level in the rivers of this country increases. Heavy rains have caused water logging in most parts of the city. More than one billion people living in coastal cities are at high risk of flooding due to climate change.
