G3: Water governance and community based management1
The Ganges basin development challenge is increasing resilience of agricultural andaquaculture systems in the Ganges delta focusing water and food security. There are fiveprojects namely G1, G2, G3, G4 and G5 having different objectives under Ganges BasinDevelopment Challenge (BDC) programme. The Project G3
is entitled “Water governanceand community based management”
As one of the partners of G3 Institute of Watermodelling (IWM) has been entrusted to carry out the following activities to supportInternational Water Management Institute (IWMI); Preparation of baseline GIS maps,inventory and condition of drainage sluices & structures, land inundation map with land type(F0,F1,F2, F3 .. ), participatory resource mapping, GIS map showing Mouza area, Mouzapopulation & Population density for 5 BWDB polders and 4 LGED subprojects.This report contains progress of field survey and data collection work, data processing andpreparation project base maps and GIS maps for each polder of the study area of G3 andinventory of structures.
2. Study area
The study area is in the coastal zone of Bangladesh. The southern part of the countryadjoining the Bay of Bengal is known as the coastal zone. In earlier decades when polderswere not constructed, low-lying areas of coastal zone were frequently flooded by salt waterduring high tide and most of the area remained fallow and cropping intensity was very low,livelihood opportunity was also poor because of less intensive economic activities. In order toincrease agricultural production by preventing the land of coastal area from frequent tidalflooding and salinity intrusion the Coastal Embankment Project (CEP) was implemented inaccordance with the Master Plan adopted in 1964. Under this program Bangladesh WaterDevelopment Board (BWDB) had built a series of polders enclosing the low-lying coastalareas. Coastal polders are the first large scale human intervention in the coastal area. Overthe years it is learned that efficient water management involving active participation of localcommunity is a prerequisite for polder management in enhancing agriculture and aquacultureproduction.The study area of G3 is within the Ganges basin of the coastal zone of Bangladesh, which is,shown in Figure 2.1. The study area includes five BWDB polders namely P-3, P-31, P-30, P-43/2f and P-24G and four LGED sub projects namely Bhagirabad-Jainkathi, Jabusha Beel,Baganchra-Badurgacha, Latabunia.

Progress of work
3.1 Field survey and Data collection
3.1.a Summary of survey work
IWM has made a comprehensive field survey using state of the art survey technology tocollect quality information on infrastructure of the polders. The field survey work has beenstarted from 15 November, 2011 and substantial progress has been made. The field datacollection for four BWDB polders (3, 30, 31, 42/2f) and four LGED subprojects (Bhagirabad-Jainkathi, Jabusha Beel, Baganchra-Badurgacha, Latabunia) has been completed. Thesummary of the activities carried out for data collection campaign is shown in Table-3.1Table-3.1: Summary of survey activity
3.1.b Survey methodology
The inventory surveys of existing structures are conducted for the Polder 3, 30, 31, 24G,43/2F and 4 LGED subprojects. For the structure inventory the main features survey arelocation (GPS & also village name), type of structure (Pipe, regulator, Box culvert), no of vent, size of vent or dia, silt level, sofit level, deck level, Fall board/flap gate, active/inactive,condition (good, minor problem, major problem), interviewing of the local people if it is
