Adaptation to Natural Disaster Risk in Bangladesh

I've been in China the last ten days.  Shanghai is an exciting city which appears to offer higher quality of life than Beijing.  While I traveled, I read the English newspapers.   The China Daily is a fun paper to read as it presents a focused Chinese leadership perspective on world issues.  A recent China Daily article offered some optimism about flood risk adaptation in Bangladesh.  More kids are attending floating schools and this allows them to continue to learn despite frequent flood conditions.  The article did not discuss transportation logistics of how the students and teachers arrive at the school.
