Abstract: Natural disasters including riverbank erosion contribute immensely to the process of marginalization of a large number of people. They displace and push household into situations that are extremely difficult to reserves. The present paper discusses the human dimension of the phenomenon and argues the need for a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying erosion vulnerability resulting population shifts on a micro scale perspective in the country. An attempt has also been made to focus the relationship between erosion hazard and dynamics of human adjustment with this hazardous situation to gain a consensus view regarding the phenomena from the affected “Haimchar” villages. This paper emphasizes that the meandering and braided river including Meghna always runs to the risk of changing course thereby eroding theexisting bank andmaking continuous attack on human settlements.
