This book explores how the landless poor, excluded from land-based agricultural development, can open up an opportunity to get out of poverty in the rural economy. The book identifies a gap between the growth and poverty-reduction dimensions of non-land-based rural development. The former is directed towards the non-poor; the latter is open to the landless poor. The poverty-reduction dimension is effective in reducing poverty but is not sufficient to help the landless escape from poverty.

Is Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) just a cliche, which does not adequately address the growing complexity of water resources management, or is it an operational approach toward making rational decisions regarding the use of these essential resources? This book aims to contribute to efforts in Bangladesh to make IWRM into an effective approach. It does so by focusing on two crucial issues in IWRM: institutional arrangements and participatory approaches.

Of particular importance is the management of the country's floodplains, which would aim to ensure sustainable development of such important sectors as agriculture and fisheries. This book investigates the complexity of land and water interfaces as well as the land cover and land use patterns in the north-central region of the country and explores the potential for the use of remote sensing techniques to support floodplain management.

Bangladesh is the world's largest delta and also the land of many water bodies. Water dominates life, people and economy of Bangladesh. Water is the most important resource of Bangladesh and the basis of its agricultural productivity. But excess of water is the cause of floods, the greatest natural hazard of Bangladesh. The developmental needs have changed the pattern of water use, given rise to conflict of interests, incorporated new technologies and have raised major environmental concerns. The different aquatic ecosystems have their own characteristics and their production patterns.

The book portrays a development strategy, based on a case study, to mitigate the impact of riverbank erosion disaster by densification of people and their settlements to safer zones. Exploration of this idea involves, in the first instance, to answer why densification is needed and who are the people to be involved in densification addressing issues such as erosion impacts, needs and response, awareness, migration and adjustment behaviour of the vulnerable people. The next focus is to highlight where the densification would take place.
