The densely populated state in South Asia is repeatedly threatened by natural disasters.
The People's Republic of Bangladesh has a population of about 165 million, according to the Human Development Report 2021/2022. Although the poverty rate is declining, about 24 % of the population lived in poverty in 2018, according to the World Bank. Cox's Bazar in the south of the country is home to the world's largest refugee camp. About one million Rohingya are seeking refuge there from violence in their home country of Myanmar. Living conditions are precarious and there are repeated fires in the camp. In general, Bangladesh has a subtropical monsoon climate. Due to its location within the tropics and by the sea in a tectonically unstable zone, the people are repeatedly threatened with natural disasters such as cyclones, landslides, earthquakes and floods.
