DESPERATE URBANIZATION (Bangladesh, 2011)

For centuries the Buriganga river has been the most important waterway in the city of Dhaka, which now has over a million inhabitants. Many of them use the Buriganga to transport goods, or as a quick way of reaching the hinterland. But with the city's uncontrolled growth this vital artery is increasingly constricted. Pollution from homes, ships and chemical factories undermines the river's function. Once the Buriganga was a blessing for Dhaka; now Dhaka has become a curse for the Buriganga.
