Abstract

The Bangladeshi government’s decision to build a coal power plant close to the Sundarbans, a UNESCO World Heritage mangrove forest celebrated for its biodiversity, has resulted in extensive public protest. In this article, Tasmiah Rahman discusses why the government is pressing ahead with the project and calls for leaders to take into account civil society objections over the likely environmental impact.
