ICWFM7 – International Conference on Water and Flood Management 2019

Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 (BDP) has been approved in September 2018.

For instance, how to take into account the longer term planning objectives while preparing the next five-year plan? How to incorporate climate change and other longer term issues in day-to-day implementation of water projects and programs?
