Bangladesh Natural Resources:
Fossil fuel resources include natural gas and coal. Other natural resources include arable land and timber.
Bangladesh Natural Hazards:
Although Bangladesh's natural hazards include droughts, much of the country is subject to cyclones and is routinely flooded during the summer monsoon season.
Bangladesh Environmental Issues:
Bangladesh has severe overpopulation, therefore many people are landless and forced to live on and cultivate flood-prone land. There are environmental issues, which include water-borne diseases prevalent in surface water, and contaminated ground water by naturally occurring arsenic. The country has water pollution, especially of the fishing areas, which resulted from the use of commercial pesticides. In the northern and central parts of the country, there are intermittent water shortages because of falling water tables. Bangladesh also has soil concerns with deforestation, erosion and soil degradation.
