নদী (Nadi) River
Bangladesh’s focus on agriculture comes from its location as the land intersected by 57 rivers. Today, floating down the Brahmaputra River, one can begin to understand the importance of water and food security. Without the annual floods much of the nutrients in the soil would be lost. Looking at the expansion of agriculture in Bangladesh from famine in the 1940s to exporting rice today it is incredible to see how technology and new techniques are changing farming.
