President, PM for protecting environment, biodiversity
President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have called upon all to make effective contributions to the preservation of environment and biodiversity along with government efforts. In separate messages on the eve of the World Environment Day-2017, they said this year's theme – ‘Connecting People to Nature’ – is time-befitting, reports BSS. In his message, President  Hamid said the tie between human beings and nature is inseparable. The existence of all animals and biodiversity is dependent on nature. But rapid in industrialisation and urbanisation along with increasing population cause irreparable damage to the environment and biodiversity, he added. The president said the government is very much sincere to protect environment, biodiversity and wildlife as it has already updated the laws related to environmental issues to control all kinds of pollution and adverse effects of climate change. In her message, Prime Minister Hasina said environment and biodiversity have been endangered due to the increase in population and imprudent activities of human beings. Ecosystem is also losing its balance. "Due to manmade environment pollution, we are going to lose the services from the ecosystem," she said, adding wildlife and biodiversity are being endangered and the rural people's lifestyle is being affected directly. Referring to different steps for safeguarding environment and wildlife, the prime minister said, "The Awami League government has attached the highest priority to protection of the environment as well as wildlife to attain sustainable development goals (SDGs) declared by the United Nation." The government has enacted the Bangladesh Biodiversity Act 2017 laying emphasis on protecting biodiversity and sustainable use of its elements, she said, adding, "We have undertaken effective measures to prevent river pollution and bring back the navigability of the rivers".
