Bangladesh is one of the poorest and most densely populated (160 million UN 2008), country of South Asia in the world and on the front lines of climate change. Bangladesh is 10 meters above the sea level, located on the Bay of Bengal in the delta of Ganges. Bangladesh has the world's highest density of rivers per unit of area, remain seasonally submerged every year. Climate change has increased the flooding recent years. Only river erosion seizes nearly 26,000 acres of land each year resulting in thousands of landless people in Bangladesh. Over the next 40 years, 17 percent of the land will be lost to the sea resulting 20 million climate refugees because of climate change. Therefore, what would be the future destiny of people in the south and northeastern zones of Bangladesh? Along with her vast population, the literacy rate (39%) in Bangladesh is the lowest among the developing countries thus major portion of total population still live below the poverty level. Bangladesh has not only been struggling for education as well as also struggling to face the incoming climate change by different means. The Northeastern regions are underdeveloped due to ecological reasons. These areas are fully marshland locally known as "Cholon Beel" and It is inundated by water 8 to 9 months a year; the inhabitants of this area are completely depended at the mercy of the environment for survival. Traveling on boat is the only means of transportation for communication.The sort dry season allows only one crop and the people have turned to fishing as their only souse of income. Naturally, with such meager resources to be tapped, the people live well below the property line. Moreover, as communication in this reason is poor at the best, infrastructural benefits is almost non-existence. Inhabitants are deprived from their basic needs as a result due to the scarcity of high land schools; the children suffer the most with very limited access to education. This has been the way of life for generations. The only thing they can hope for is luck. In such despair in 2002, a non-profitable organization named “Shidhulai Swanirvar Sangstha" came forward with an amazing idea to promote education and basic human needs of that impoverished regions. They tried to use the natural event of these regions ---- 'Water' and 'Boat' simultaneously to build up a scheme called "Education on the Boat". It is really an astonishing effort to promote education and basic needs in all perspective by considering economic, climatic, and environmental adversities. It is the first river-based environmental education and training effort in the country that teaches how to protect the environment and conserve water. Boat schools are the combinations of a school bus, schoolhouse, training boats, library and medical centers etc. Boat schools move from different riverside villages to collect the students & its beneficiaries and finally docking at last destination, arrange on board classes and training as well as provide other facilities accordingly. After the end of session, the boats drop recipients at their places and then moves forward to pick other groups. Within seven years, one hundred thousand families have directly benefited by this process. This gradually increased the literacy rate and indirectly changed the total scenarios of “Cholon Beel”. Certainly, this exceptional concept will be inspired all level of people of the world how to deal with the future climates change and to promote education, all basic human needs as well as conserving the environment and at the same time, to lift people out of poverty in any given situation within the most cost effective manners.
