Grassroots enviroplan

Published: Tuesday 31 May 1994

THE grassroots level environmental concerns of Bangladeshi citizens may finally be reflected in the Bangladesh government's latest National Environmental Management Action Plan (NEMAP), according to a report by Mostafa Kamal Majumder. A series of 24 consultation meetings with a cross-section of the population -- NGOs, farmers, religious leaders, teachers, chairpersons and members of the union parishads -- between the end of February and June will ferret out the environmental problems and strategies.

The sudden concern for those at ground level probably has to do with the dissatisfaction of foreign donors with the NEMAP document of the past 3 years.
