Govt extends ban on cutting trees in forests until 2022


The government decided to extend the ban on cutting down trees at the country’s preserved and natural forests until 2022, a measure to protect biodiversity.

A regular Cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, on Monday approved the proposal submitted by the Ministry of Environment and Forests.

Cabinet Secretary Md Shafiul Alam later told reporters that the ministry had proposed extending the ban until 2025. “But the meeting decided to extend it until 2022.”

The deadline on the ban earlier ended on Dec 31 last year. Alam said the new extended deadline will be considered as effective from Jan 1 this year, according to bdnews24.com. –RH
