ENVIRONMENTAL issues ranked
fifth among national problems in
Sri Lanka, reports Nalaka
Gunawardene from Colombo.
Quoting a study by Survey Research

Gunawardene says cost of living,
ethnic issues, unemployment and
the high cost of housing take precedence over environment.
However, more than 50 per cent of the 4,000 respondents who identified environment as a serious issue felt that problems such as pollution had worsened over the last decade.
