Bangladesh is amazingly green but it is a forest poor country indeed. According to officially recognized estimates the country’s forest cover has shrunk to merely six percent today from 20% in 1927. Even this estimate about the remaining forests is questionable. The old growth trees have disappeared from he public forests and one can hardly find good patches of natural forest anywhere in Bangladesh except for those in the mangroves. Plantations are not to be considered as forests. This is a miserable situation for the maintenance of ecological stability.

Bangladesh is frequently defined by poverty, resource scarcity, over population, corruption and natural calamities. These are, of course, some conditions that need to be addressed in policy discussion for poverty eradication and overall progress of the country. But there are other factors beyond our boundaries building unavoidable conditions and threats, which eventually stand in the way of environmental safety and sustainable development. Bangladesh has stepped into the 21st century with all these conditions and threats already have profound impacts on our ecology, life and livelihood.

Surveys find that compared to other Asia countries sex-workers in Bangladesh report the highest number of partners, and the lowest rate of condom use. While these statistics are serious warning signals for a probable HIV/AIDS epidemic, the overwhelming majority of sex-workers have other immediate concerns such as poverty, threats of eviction from brothels, extreme uncertainties in city streets, total rejection by society, and exploitation by the controllers ( the police topping the list) of the trade.

The Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) in the southeast of Bangladesh is unique and attractive to outsiders. It forms a bridge between South Asia and Southeast Asia. From the plains one is amazed to see the picturesque mountain landscapes. The hill indigenous people who are divided into 12 groups exhibit distinct and different cultures. These amazing, amusing, honest and always smiling people seem to be part of Nature. But this mountainous region and its original inhabitants have undergone enormous assault and sufferings due to ill-conceived development initiatives and human greed.
