Why we need green affordable housing | Dhaka Tribune
Dhaka is growing at an exponential rate. Bangladesh, with an estimated population of 166 million as reported in the 2020 Housing Report, is one of the most densely populated countries in South Asia.
Population growth is skewed towards urban areas and urban population has doubled in less than two decades from 31 million in 2000 to 68.8 million in 2020. Currently, urban population comprises almost 39.4% of the total population. Half of the Bangladesh population are estimated to live in urban areas by 2030.
