Environmental degradation and depletion of natural resources are a major issue in Bangladesh. Poverty, over-population and a lack of public awareness are all contributing to deforestation, the destruction of wetlands and the depletion of important natural resources such as soil nutrients. Calamities such as floods, cyclones and tidal-bores are also causing severe socio-economic and environmental damage.
To help address this national and global crisis, UKBET is now running environment-related awareness-raising programmes for a wide range of different target groups. At the moment we are working in partnership with Rotary Clubs and Bangladesh Poribesh Anodolon (Bangladesh Environmentalist Movement). We are keen to work with other agencies working on environmental issues too as well as individuals who are passionate about the environment. If you would like to work in partnership with us or support this work, please do get in touch.
