n the South West region of Bangladesh, water logging has emerged as a pressing concern in the backdrop of climate change. Gradual siltation on the bed of Kabodak River and other adjacent rivers, triggered by inadequate runoffs in the southern reaches, is the main source of the problem. There are areas where people are compelled to live in water logged condition for even nine months a year. Economic activities and agricultural activities have been severely constrained in water logged situation.
