Farmers can play a pivotal role in protecting the environment: Environment minister Bangladesh


Md. Shahab Uddin, Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC), Bangladesh, said, “Farmers have to play a leading role in the overall environment development by protecting the hills and forests of the country.
