Country Overview

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. It is bordered by India and separated from Nepal by the Chicken’s Neck Corridor, and is dominated by the fertile Bengal Delta. Bangladesh has an economy larger than such countries as Switzerland, Sweden and Qatar and has achieved significant human and social progress since independence.


Although it is noted for its lush greenery and many waterways, Bangladesh’s geographic location makes it vulnerable to frequent natural disasters such as floods, cyclones, and earthquakes. Poverty is also widespread throughout the country, and millions of children are forced to work, often in hazardous and low waged jobs, to help support themselves and their families.
