Hazards and Vulnerability in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is vulnerable and at risk to extreme shocks such as climate change. The country has widespread unmapped areas which create difficulty in fostering resilience. Due to monsoons, cyclones, and their low lying geography, the country is often inundated. The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and YouthMappers are working with the USAID GeoCenter alongside students at Dhaka University in filling in spatial data gaps and building a strong community of students who are prolific data volunteers.
