This Univ. Cambridge (UK) 2000 M.Sc. thesis of Mr. Md.
Jakariya looked the causes for different responses of two different villages
to arsenic contamination of groundwater used drinking. In one of the
villages, 85% of residents were consuming arsenic-safe water, either treated
or from alternative sources. In the other village, over 80% of
residents continued to consume arsenic-contaminated water. The
difference in response in the two village was found to be be related
to differences in practical evidence of arsenic toxicity (ie the number of
arsenic-affected patients) in the village and differences in difficulty of
obtaining alternative water supplies.
This 2000 study by Dr. Bennett looked at available maps and
historical statistics for the Red River Basin of land use, population,
infrastructure, etc., and discussed the land use and water resources
management implications related to urbanization, population growth,
explosive groundwater development, the pressing need for poverty

This 1995 study characterized the wetland biodiversity
of northeast Bangladesh (including identification of wetlands meeting Ramsar
Convention criteria for international significance), presented a
strategic analysis, and proposed a number of wetland management initiatives
for stakeholder consideration.
This 1994 IEE evaluated the potential impacts of the
Plan and the Plan project portfolio -- which included both structural and
non-structural measures -- following FPCO and Canadian guidelines for IEE
and for multi-criteria analysis.
