Conservation of Coastal Wetland in Southwest Region of Bangladesh

The project was successfully implemented by the support of IUCN-NL in two phases from March 2005 to September 2006.

The southwest coastal region of Bangladesh is an active part of Ganges Delta formed by alluvial soil carried in by the upstream flows. Most of the part of this region (about 70% of the total landmass) are coastal wetlands by nature, that are connected with many estuarine rivers of the Bay of Bengal. The coastal wetlands are very rich in biodiversity and highly biological productive in nature and are the grazing and breeding ground of many marine species. Coastal wetlands also provide habitat for a wide variety of resident and migratory waterfowls. In the 1960s the Coastal Embankment Project (CEP) was initiated to protect saline water entrance to the coastal wetlands.
