For Bangladesh the climate change is not a threat anymore. Are the people and the government prepared enough with strategies and the determination to battle the pollution scenario in Bangladesh? Accidental or deliberate, operational discharges and spills of oil from ships, especially tankers, offshore platforms and pipelines, are the most obvious and visible causes of oil pollution of the marine environment. Few steps have been taken by the government to improve the environmental degradation and pollution control. Some other reasons are also liable for water pollution like rotting jute in river water, human wastes, domestic wastes, sand lifting etc. The index terms the air quality of Dhaka is extremely unhealthy, as the city consistently ranks between 301 to 500 range. It causes melanosis, kurtosis and conjunctivitis.
Atomic war, nuclear weapons testing is the most dangerous of radioactive pollution. By contrast, annual reports are mandatory. Bangladesh is celebrated as Environment Day on 5th June in the world as well. This data focus on under-nutrition and some of the determinants related to household, child and mother. Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. In current, the population of Dhaka city is near 2 corers. The World Bank estimates that 25% of the tube wells in Bangladesh out of a total of 4mn may be contaminated by arsenic.
The Arsenic effect not only causes serious health hazards but also creates a widespread social problem. Carbon monoxide hampers the growth and mental development of an expected baby. This problem is going beyond control. More than 500 hospitals and clinics of Dhaka city generate and release hazardous and toxic wastes without any treatment. After using the water we should stop the taps, fountains etc. The Dhaka City Corporation is a self-governing corporation. Bangladesh saw around 234,000 deaths, including 80,000 in urban areas, due to environmental pollution and related health risks in 2015, making it one of the worst affected countries in the world, reveals a World Bank report.
Carbon dioxide is production rate is extensive as the burning of fuel oil is high. In absence of the sanitation and infrastructural services, 40% having septic tank and soak pit, 15% using pit latrines and 30% using open latrines. Arsenic Contamination Ground water arsenic contamination in Bangladesh is reported to be the biggest arsenic calamity in the world in terms of the proportion of the population affected. It is also creating scarcity of drinking water. The two stroke automobiles, industrial emissions and bad civic practices are contributing to air pollution in this country. Scientists are concerned with a fact that, everybody anticipates sea-level-rise impact and associated climate change impact on Bangladesh coastal areas.
It has become a major concern in the last few decades. But now the water routes have slashed down to a mere 6,000km. Today's Dhaka has a long story of evolution. Apparently the capital dwellers will have to brace for another spate of traffic jams and inordinate hold-ups on the roads of the capital during the month of Ramzan. Ship breaking activities near by the coast also worsen the condition. Environmental degradation of Bangladesh is also caused due to poverty, over-population and lack of awareness among the people. A comprehensive legislation and its attentive enforcement can help bring relief to the citizen of Dhaka.
They are currently struggling with human pressure and high level of sedimentation, and in near future they are expected to face sea-level rise and increased temperature. The Present Condition of Dhaka: Dhaka is the 9th largest city, and one of the most densely populated cities in the world. In current, the population of Dhaka city is near 2 corers. The sewage is mostly released into low-lying areas and river water in untreated manner causing great environmental hazards. We should plant more trees and preserve those planted before. The less carbonate ions availability in the water would hamper the calcification, slowing down the growth rates and decreasing the structural strengths of these organisms Ocean acidification, if not controlled, would exacerbate the situation and could destroy all the coral reefs by as early as 2050. Outdoor air pollution killed 3.
Healthy coral reefs mean a healthy world. Ground water is not directly exposed to surface. This is the city where people from various places from Bangladesh come to make their career, fulfill their desire, and make their dreams come true. Comparison of Air Pollution in World Mega cities 6. The housing shortage is so acute that one third of the citys population lives in slums. Arsenic in ground water poses a serious environmental hazard for Bangladesh.
Water Pollution: Water is considered polluted when chemicals, pathogens, or contaminants are detected. Answer: I went to Dhaka in December 2017 to join my parents. And in 1956 it became the capital of East Pakistan. In recent time, the area of Dhaka city is about 1353 sq. In 1905 it was again named the capital of Bengal. Fishermen and other people who earn from the river centered activities are being confused and frustrated about their source of income as river water has gone under threat. In the last four decades the country experienced a massive environmental degradation as different economic development activities took place here.
The quality of soil has deteriorated due to excessive use of agrochemicals, unplanned land use, undesirable encroachment on forest areas for agriculture to grow more crops to meet the demands of growing population. Besides creating air borne diseases, it is suffocating us. To prevent pollution, government as well as all the conscious citizens of the city should come forward to develop civic sense to reduce all kinds of pollution in Dhaka. And in 1956 it became the capital of East Pakistan. Hence, the condition of Dhaka City is going to be bad to worse on the view of living condition. Arsenic water if used for drinking purpose may cause nausea, diarrhea, discoloration and thickening of skin, abdominal pain, blood vessel damage and skin rash.
