This book includes selected papers on agricultural disaster management based on the author's thirty-five years experience in agricultural development in Bangladesh. This was a field in which the author did pioneering work: first by analysing the impacts of natural disasters on agricultural production and indicating practical rehabilitation measures for different kinds of land and soils month by month throughout the year; then by codifying institutional procedures for reporting and assessing crop damage and for organizing appropriate relief and rehabilitation measures.

This book illustrates the uncertainties of the lives of the inhabitants of ‘Char’ lands (reclaimed land) in Bangladesh. Flooding and riverbank erosion are endemic features in the areas close to the major rivers in Bangladesh. The rivers also throw up fertile lands that cause violent clashes between competing camps. Such violence has been examined against the backdrop and compulsions of cropping phenophases. With the help of several case studies, the book describes the survival strategies of the ‘char’ lands.
