The Response

Since its inception BEN has collaborated with pro environment agencies in Bangladesh to nurture a broad social movement, such as represented by the Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon (Bangladesh Environment Movement, BAPA) Recent achievements in Bangladesh have been encouraging, but many problems yet need to be addressed adequately.  You can get updates on  environmental issues via our discussion site or contact us for more information on how you can participate in our work.

 

BEN has setup this web-site as repository of information about environmental problems of Bangladesh and about the activities of BEN.

We hope that you will join this effort to protect Bangladesh's environment
