The Delta Alliance Bangladesh Wing (DABW) is a knowledge driven network in Bangladesh under the Delta Alliance with the mission of improving the resilience of the world's deltas in general. DABW focusses on Bangladesh in particular, brings together many parties and supports a joint perspective for addressing issues of importance in Bangladesh as a delta country.
The Wing is coordinated by Mr. Abu Saleh Khan, Executive Director of the Dhaka based Institute of Water Modelling. The Steering Committee further consists of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Centre for Environmental and Geographic Information Services (CEGIS), Water Resources Planning Organization (WARPO), Bangladesh Centre for Advance Studies (BCAS) and the Bangladesh Water Partnership (BWP).

Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta

The Ganges Brahmaputra Delta, also named Ganges Delta, Sunderban Delta or Bengal Delta is situated in Asia where the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers discharge, together with the Meghna river, into the Bay of Bengal. It is, with a surface area of some 100.000 km2, the world's largest Delta. Like the national Bangladesh Delta Plan, currently being formulated, the Wing focuses on Bangladesh as a delta country as a whole. Important delta issues are urbanization, over population, climate change, sedimentation and erosion, salinity, disaster preparedness (cyclones) and food security.
