The Sundarbans

| |

The Sundarbans ('Forest of Sundari trees') are one of the largest remaining areas of mangroves in the world. It also has exceptional biodiversity, notably about 400 Bengali tigers. Its ever changing landscape is shaped by tidal shifts, rivers and creeks.

Brief Description

The Sundarbans mangrove forest, one of the largest such forests in the world (140,000 ha), lies on the delta of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers on the Bay of Bengal. It is adjacent to the border of India’s Sundarbans World Heritage site inscribed in 1987. The site is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests, and presents an excellent example of ongoing ecological processes. The area is known for its wide range of fauna, including 260 bird species, the Bengal tiger and other threatened species such as the estuarine crocodile and the Indian python.

Justification for Inscription

The Committee inscribed the site under criteria (ix) and (x) as one of the largest remaining areas of mangroves in the world, which supports an exceptional biodiversity with a wide range of flora and fauna, including the Bengal Tiger and provides a significant example of on-going ecological processes (monsoon rains, flooding, delta formation, tidal influence and plant colonisation).

Long Description

The Sundarbans consist of three wildlife sanctuaries (Sundarbans West, East and South) lying on disjunct deltaic islands just west of the main outflow of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers, close to the border with India.
The sanctuaries are intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mud flats and small islands of salt tolerant mangrove forests. The area is flooded with brackish water during high tides which mix with freshwater from inland rivers.

Whether the place is suitable to carry the raw material or the availability of raw materials, the locations of markets to buy and sells important commodities cost of the labor and climate. If the labor cost is high then we have to select low labor cost place and if the climate is not suitable for that industry we simply cannot build that kinds of industry. As for example we cannot build a cement industry in the desert. Labor cost in the mongla is very low. As it is not very developed area so that it is expected to have lower labor cost. It is situated near bay of Bengal. So that raw material can easily carried by ship and other vessels. It is also surrounded by Sundorbans. So this area naturally gets eco friendly environment. Community considerations: We have to consider mainly 1. Quality of life 2. Service 3. Attitude 4. Taxes 5. Environmental regulations 6. Utilities 7. Developer support Normally industries are built in the vast open space. But before building an industry we have to take into considerations the community system. We have to take into count quality of lives, service, taxes, utilities, environmental support, attitudes, developers support etc. If taxes are very high compared to other places then the production cost will also......
