The Bengal Basin lies in a part of India and covers a substantial portion of Bangladesh. It is endowed with unique geographical features and a challenging terrain. It has one of the world's largest alluvial deltaic plains, allowing the flow of three big rivers - the Ganges, the Brahmaputra, and the Meghna. The climate of the Bengal Basin is sub-tropical monsoonal, experiencing moderate warm temperature and high humidity, with heavy seasonal rainfall. It is, in many ways, vulnerable to atmospheric and oceanic adversities. During the tropical monsoon, the Basin encounters widespread flooding but in the dry months it lacks drinking water supplies.



Over 230 million people live in the greater Bengal Basin, which is divided into two geographic areas and two political entities. The eastern part of the Bengal Basin is the independent nation of Bangladesh, which has a population of 150 million people.The western part of the Bengal Basin is the West Bengal region of India, which has a population of 82 million people.The Bengal Basin is facing one of the largest environmental disasters in human history. Over 80 million Bengalis are showing symptoms of toxic poisoning due to contamination of their drinking water. Bengal Basin organizations, as well as national and international authorities, are struggling to provide safe drinking water for Bengal citizens, but the problem is immense and the world needs to help.



Residents in both parts of the Bengal Basin suffer the poisonous consequences of toxin-contaminated drinking water. It is reported that about 100 million people in India along the river Ganges are also exposed to arsenic poisoning and many more are also suffering from other toxic poisoning throughout the Indo Bangla continent.
