US, UK fund for reducing Bangladesh river pollution

| @indiablooms | 08 May 2021, 10:51 pm

The USA and the UK have co-founded a USD 297,000 advocacy project to reduce pollution caused by different rivers in Bangladesh’s Dhaka district.

The project called “Promoting Democratic Governance and Collective Advocacy for Environmental Protection in Dhaka City” was developed by Water keepers Bangladesh (WKB) Consortium  in collaboration with Counterpart International.

The project is co-funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO), the Dhaka Tribune reported.

The US 297,000 USAID grant would be utilized by WKB to implement a robust advocacy initiative to monitor and control Dhaka City water, air, and noise quality.

The WKB consortium will collaborate with key government, civil society organizations, universities, private sector corporations, and other stakeholders to improve the environment and quality of life in Dhaka.

The US government has provided more than USD 8 billion through USAID in development assistance to Bangladesh since 1971.
