Bangladesh's flood action plan: a critique

Economic and Political Weekly 28(29/30): 1501-1503
Bangladesh's flood action plan: a critique
This paper reviews Bangladesh's flood action plan of 1990, which is cited as a good example of the unrealistic and expensive schemes that agencies like the World Bank have forced many developing countries to undertake, without a realistic appraisal of experiences within the country. After excessive floods in 1987 and 1988, Bangladesh called other international organizations for help.
