Bangladesh is a riverine country and the vast river system plays a crucial role in maintaining the eco system and natural environment of the country. Unfortunately lack of proper governance and lawlessness, unplanned projects are hurting this system. The current situation of river system exacerbates the intensity of disasters and causes more harm to people.
Keeping this in mind , Foundation for Disaster Forum arranged river fairs to create mass awareness among general people about the importance of preserving and restoring the river system, and its effect on natural environment, as well as processes such as land grabbing, unplanned developments that are direct threat to the system.
