Our On Going Projects

Land acquisition

GIS Support to Land Acquisition and Resettlement

Developed a GIS based Information Management System which will provide assistance to Padma river bank community people.

River Bank Erosion Prediction

River Bank Erosion Prediction

Every year, the highly dynamic Jamuna, Padma and Lower Meghna rivers render thousands of people in Bangladesh landless by eroding large areas of floodplains. The researchers of CCSDR working to provide forecasting about the coming threats for the local people.
