Located in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent, already a British possession united with India, when Pakistan became independent (1947), Bangladesh was merged with the latter, first with the name of East Bengal, then with that of East Pakistan. After years of autonomist struggles, animated by geographical and ethnic-cultural reasons, in turn aggravated by the growing marginalization with respect to the policies of the Pakistani central government, Bangladesh achieved independence in 1971, with the intention of starting a process of autonomous development. Despite the efforts, the country is still far from achieving a real reconversion of its socio-economic structures, forced within narrow borders also due to the political situation that remains opposed. According to COUNTRYAAH, Bangladesh is a nation in Southern Asia, the capital city of which is Dhaka. The latest population of Bangladesh is 164,689,394.

GEOGRAPHY
Bangladesh extends over a territory that, without well-identified physical boundaries, overlooks the low and alluvial northern coast of the Bay of Bengal. With the exception of the Chittagong hills and a narrow marginal area of ​​the Shillong plateau, Bangladesh is characterized by an immense plain, consisting of the floods of numerous rivers: the Ganges, the Brahmaputra-Jamuna, the Tista and the Surma-Meghna which drains the Shillong Plateau. In the northern part of the country extends the Barind, a sort of undulating lowland, between the Ganges and the Brahmaputra, divided by the furrows of numerous rivers; similar characteristics have the nearby jungle of Madhupur, between Jamuna and Meghna. These two regions, located above the flood level (paradelta), have ferruginous and reddish soils, known locally as khiyar. The central section of the country is located on the so-called evolved delta, a region in which the slightest differences in level are of decisive importance to the effects of the flood; extended for approx. 65,000 km², is a low, amphibious plain, with some areas that already belong to the mature delta, as they are depressed areas and therefore occupied by lakes and marshes. The Sylhet plain can be linked to the latter type of delta, which winds between the Shillong plateau, the Madhupur jungle and the Chittagong hills. Closer to the sea is the active delta, which extends from 100 to 130 km in depth; amphibious region affected by both floods and tides, is occupied by a vast mangrove forest, the western section of which is called Sundarbans (beautiful forest). The Chittagong Hills region in southeastern Bangladesh has quite different characteristics; affected by the Himalayan orogeny, it consists of a dozen parallel chains, oriented from N to S, on average 600 m above sea level and separated by flat-bottomed valleys (the main one is the Karnafuli river, which in its upper course feeds the homonymous large artificial lake). Bangladesh has a climate characterized by high temperatures, violent rainfall and a marked distinction between a wet season (April to October) and a dry one. These conditions are explained by the geographical position of Bengal which, due to the obstacle placed between the Arakan and the Himalayas, is hit by the humid flow of the SW monsoon coming from the sea. Average temperatures range from 16-20 ºC in January to 27-28 ºC in July, with peaks for example of 31 ºC (Cox’s Bāzār) and 36 ºC (Rājshāhi) in April, the hottest month. The overall amount of precipitation is very high everywhere, with minimum values ​​of 1500 mm in the western section of the country and maximum values ​​ (over 5000 mm per year) in the north-eastern sections, near the Shillong plateau, and south-eastern sections (Cox’s Bāzār). More than the overall quantity of precipitation, their seasonal distribution is significant.
