Floods are a recurring phenomenon in Bangladesh, and they occur in varying magnitudes almost every year. The catastrophic flood of 1998 was the worst in living memory both in terms of area affected and its duration.

With mounting evidence of the flood threatening to assume catastrophic dimensions, a Jatiyo Tran Committee - JTC (National Committee for Relief and Rehabilitation) was set up comprising a cross-section of concerned citizens with the twofold objectives of (i) undertaking/supporting rescue, relief, and rehabilitation operations led by the government with the support of various organizations including political parties and NGOs and the people themselves, (ii) initiating studies on the nature, causes and implications of floods in Bangladesh with a view to understanding the processes and dynamics of floods, in order that the Government is better equipped to cope with floods in the future.

This book is the outcome of a seminar on Flood '98, held in Dhaka in December 1998. Papers presented in this volume are by leading professionals who are experts on the geographical, environmental, engineering, economic, and legal aspects of flood and natural disasters. They analyse the internal, regional and oceanic causes of Flood '98; assess the damages to both the urban and rural populations, to crops, livestock, infrastructure and other individual and societal assets. The authors have sought to suggest ways to possible solutions of the flood problem in terms of management of floods in the future through a planned national effort. More importantly the authors emphasize on integrating national efforts with a regional cooperation network involving the upper riparians.
