Dhaka -- The Bangladeshi people living in the remote areas of the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) are still facing severe food insecurity due to a three year long rat plague which affected their crops. Every 40-50 years the bamboo plants produce flowers which, when consumed, cause the rats to reproduce at an accelerated rate. The rats have eaten seeds, crops and food stocks leaving an estimated 130,000 people with inadequate food sources or incomes.
