One of my regular correspondents is a civil engineer with the highway department in Bangladesh. He sent me the following article links from The Daily Star [in Dhaka, Bangladesh]:
They are facing problems of massive corruption, infrastructure failing, and several large rivers that are dammed on the Indian side of the border, which threaten to turn fertile deltas into deserts.
He’s sufficiently placed he may be able to, and “considering” emigrating to Canada or to the US. I suggested he “consider faster” and not wait until it’s too late.
This adds to my estimation that India will be at war with Pakistan, Bangladesh and possibly China before 2025, for water and other critical resources it needs to feed its people.
