The factors responsible for wetlands changes in the study area are riverbank erosion, flood and sedimentation, expansion of human settlement, urbanization, industrialization, unplanned development activities, overexploitation, agricultural practices and climate change. Based on these findings, a number of guidelines and strategies have been put forward for sustainable wetlands management in Bangladesh.
