UNDP lauds Bangladesh’s success in maintaining ozone layer

DHAKA: UNDP Acting Country Director Koyko Yoksosui yesterday appreciated Bangladesh’s success in maintaining ozone layer through proper implantation of the Montreal Protocol.

She made the appreciation while addressing a discussion at Ban Bhaban in the city marking the World Ozone Day with Environment and Forests Ministry Secretary Istiaque Ahmad in the chair.

Environment and Forests Minister Anwar Hossain Manju addressed the discussion as the chief guest.

The Montreal Protocol was signed in the Vienna Convention for the protection of the ozone layer on September 16, 1987 and it came into force on 1 January 1989.

Koyko Yoksosui said the use of freeze and television has increased in Bangladesh with the boost in per capita income, which is harmful to the ozone layer.

She stressed the need for combination of the government and non-government initiatives to come out of the problem.

Addressing the function, Manju said the powerful countries have taken the world to such a stage where living has become difficult.

The dream of building a livable beautiful world for the new generation is on the way to be ruined, he said and, adding, “Yet, we are showing hope to the new generation”.

Department of Environment Director General (DG) Raisul Alam Mondal, Additional DG Quazi Sarwar Imtiaz Hashmi and Chief Conservator of Forests Shafiul Alam Chaudhury addressed the discussion, among others.
