Plastic use banned in Rohingya camps

Plastic use banned in Rohingya camps


The Cox’s Bazar Civil S and NGO Forum (CCNF), an NGO and civil society network working in the Rohingya camp in Cox’s Bazar has called for banning plastics and prioritizing environmental restoration.

Through a virtual press conference, the CCNF also demanded transparency in implementing the programs adopted to address the Rohingya crisis and ensure local government bodies’ participation in all processes.

Speaking on behalf of the Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon  (BAPA), Nazrul Islam said, “There is a lot of plastic and other waste in the Rohingya camps.

NGOs need to find alternative ways to take creative projects. Surface water must be stored and used. Groundwater abstraction should stop immediately. Furthermore, there is a need to set up a water treatment plant to fetch water from the Naf River. “

The speakers demanded implementing the policy of partner selection towards international organizations for building a sustainable local civil society in Cox’s Bazar.

The speakers further suggested that “If local NGOs do not consider partners, in any case, they should make aware of their weaknesses so that they can acquire the necessary skills.

The Joint Response Plan should be alive or moving document so that local agencies have the opportunity to participate in this process at any time.”

Hamidul Haque Chowdhury, Chairman of the Ukhia Upazila committee, in his speech demanded to ensure the participation of local government leaders in the implementation of the project.
