Education- Literacy rate is low and there is a significant disparity between female and male literacy rates. However, with on going awareness of both the government and NGO's, literacy rate has been going up. Bangladesh gets International Literacy Prize 1998 from UNESCO for its ongoing literacy rate. It is targeted that, the country will be illiteracy-free by the year 2005.
Bangladesh is a tropical monsoonical country (monsoon means a seasonal prevailing wind in the region) Bangladesh is mainly a flat region but there is a range of hills in the south east of Bangladesh. Bangladesh has 3 major rivers named 1.Ganges, 2.The Brahmaputra and 3.The Meghna, Bangladesh has experienced alot of natural disasters such as heavy rainfalls causing floods and also droughts and typhoons.
Waste-Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated cities. Due to lack of infrastructure, knowledge for proper method, technological assistance as well as socio-economic barriers, this city lacks an efficient garbage management system.

Occasionally social workers and organizations working on environmental issues raised their voices about this neglected problem but with the outburst soon faded away. The air and environment already polluted by vehicles with old engines and no catalytic converters is further being polluted by the gas these wastes release. Garbage is clogging the roads and blocking the drains turning the road and the pipelines into more trafficked pathways. Infectious and contagious diseases are gaining pace, affecting more and more people with time
