Bangladesh Railway Slums 2013
Dhaka, Bangladesh
By Mais Istanbuli
20 Jan 2013

Bangladesh’s vibrant capital, Dakha, is home to more than 10 million people, making it one of the world’s most populated cities. Hundreds of people live beside the railroad in the Kawran Bazar slum, where residents face dire conditions in the unsanitary environment, such as a lack of running water.

Dhaka currently has a population of 14 million people, which is expected to increase to 50 million by 2050. Approximately 400,000 newcomers enter the city each year, most of whom are environmental refugees. Over-populated slums are filled with these refugees who have no choice but to put up with the poor living conditions. Dhaka is now considered to be the fastest-growing city in the world. Dhaka, Bangladesh, June, 2013.

Bricks of Bangladesh (18 of 24)

Most work on the fields is done manually, from digging up the mud to forming the bricks, leaving them to dry and burning them in large kilns. Bricks are the most efficient and widely used building material and new brick buildings are erected across the country. Bandarban, Bangladesh. January 2013.

Bricks of Bangladesh
Kushtia, Bangladesh
By Mais Istanbuli
10 Jan 2013

The cities of Bangladesh, one of the world's most densely populated countries, are growing fast and there's a never-ending need for cheap and available construction material. Today, bricks are the most efficient and widely used building material. Each day, new brick buildings are erected across the country. However, the millions of workers who make the bricks face harsh and uncertain conditions. All across Bangladesh, one can witness the towering brick chimneys.

There are more than 10,000 brick fields in the country, twice as many as ten years ago. Since Bangledash is rapidly urbanizing, bricks are a crucial building material. Some bricks get exported to nearby India, but the fields mainly provide for the local construction industry, which faces constant demand. The fields are staffed by hard-working Bangladeshis, many of whom come from rural backgrounds and work seasonally on the fields, which are closed during winter.

While brick-making represents an important part of Bangladesh’s industry, it remains both outdated and harmful to the workers. All the work is done manually, from digging the mud and forming the bricks to burning them in traditional kilns. Some workers live in make-shift buildings on the site, others have their houses and families nearby. The morning shift starts early, followed by a lunch break in the middle of the day. Then, they continue in the afternoon until sunset.

The workers eat together: traditional Bangladeshi fare which is rice accompanied by a spicy vegetable curry, lentils or fish. Many fields have a small pond nearby which allow the workers to rinse off the red dust generated in the brick-making process. The workers vary; young men, and some women too, work side by side with more experienced workers. Many young children work there as well.

While brick-making might provide a better income than agriculture or other jobs available in rural Bangladesh, it is unsafe and detrimental to the laborers' health. Accidents are common and workers have no protective gear. The fields affect nearby towns and villages as well, as the dust spreads across the surrounding areas, generating more health problems.

Moreover, the fields are a major source of environmental pollution. They represent the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the country, with several million tons emitted annually. In an effort to make the industry more sustainable, UNDP Bangladesh has launched a program to make the fields greener and more efficient. Most fields, however, have yet to take the step and replace their old kilns with new technology.
