Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world when it comes to flooding, storms, and impact from sea level rise.
In 2016, Bangladesh experienced four cyclones — a record number in the country's recent history. And by 2050, sea level rise could inundate 17% of its land and displace up to 18 million people in Bangladesh, according to Atiq Rahman, the nation's leading climate scientist.
Extreme weather events already flood many homes, schools, and commercial buildings every year.
An Amsterdam-based architecture firm called Waterstudio has come up with one possible solution: floating structures that can withstand storms.
