Chandpur is a major port situated where the two great rivers Padma and Jamuna intersect with the equally magnificent Meghna river, and is therefore extremely vulnerable to riverbank erosion. In later years water seeping down from melting ice caps in the Himalayas, in addition to a general rise in sea levels, have lead to intensified erosion. In 2001 the Chandpur's an estimated 40-45 percent of the city centre is eroded and the trade centre was hit badly.  (Bangladesh, 2009 )
