Char, the water retention zone at our park
The Char Zone resembles the iconic shifting sandbars or shoals of the deltaic and braided riverine landscape of Bangladesh. This Zone marks the northern end of the lake where water fluctuations are most visible during monsoon months. At the same time, it is also situated at the lowest-lying land area of the park to convey the essence of Chars’ proximity to fluctuating water levels. The Char Zone includes sandbar-responsive agricultural systems and technologies, appropriate climate-smart technologies, model floating house, flood-resilient raised model house and homestead for floodplains, Agri-silvi-pastoral system, wildlife refuge zone, audio-visual zonal-learning hub, etc. Visitors can explore the zone through a lifted boardwalk that results in an exciting yet soft transition of one’s journey from land to the watery landscape.
Apart from these conspicuous features, the Climate Technology Park also embodies important eco-friendly features like landscape-wide internal stormwater management infrastructure (bioswales, rain-gardens, continuous contour trench, vegetated biofilter strips, etc.), water garden, stormwater retention zone, eco-friendly WASH facilities, native deciduous forest patch, wildlife corridors, etc.
