Magazine Description

In this issue

Setting up of Rampal power plant is a hotly debated issue in Bangladesh. Environmental activists are apparently dead against the plant as they think it would destroy the world’s largest mangrove forest. On the other hand, the government is determined to build the plant for the sake of development. In this circumstance, UNESCO issued a report on the consequences of the coal-fired power plant now being implemented, stimulating the activists to gear up their protests. UNESCO urges the government of Bangladesh to explain its position about the project and, at the same time, requested to cancel the plant near the World Heritage Site. However, the power sector experts say the UNESCO report was based mainly on information from tertiary sources, and without taking into consideration properly the technological specifications. While the government is going ahead with the project, it says the report was misleading and without having adequate information. It is also preparing response to explain different issues of concern and would be sent soon to the UNESCO. The government, going beyond its determination and rigidity, should take a pro-active role to explain in detail the issues of concern not only to appease the UNESCO, but also to clear confusion among the people. It would create a win-win situation.
