|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.|
