In the analysed area; about 500,000 ha of lands are likely affected. The population exposure analysis using WorldPop data shows that 3,500,000 people are potentially affected by floods in this analysed zone: ~1,500,000 are located in Sylhet Division and ~1,000,000 in Sumanganj Division and about 35% of the population is leaving within or close to inundated areas.
