Surveys revealed a wide diversity of landscapes and soils, that soil formation on the country's floodplains could be extraordinarily rapid and that several soils had features which were new to soil science. In this book Hugh Brammer shares with the readers the exciting experience of deciphering the various processes of soil formation in Bangladesh. Lesotho The Human Capital Index (HCI) database provides data at the country level for each of the components of the Human Capital Index as well as for the overall index, disaggregated by gender. The index measures the amount of human capital that a child born today can expect to attain by given the risks of poor health and poor.
