A Compilation of Environment Laws

Administrated By the Department of Environment
Edited by Md. Emdadul Haque


This Book prepared by Md. Emdadul Huq, a senior Officer of the Ministry of Law, provides the first completion of Bangladesh environmental and pollution control laws implemented and enforced by the Department of the Environment. To enhance its practical value as a working reference, legal texts have been annotated with reference to relevant government implementation policies, directives and procedural orders.

The book may serve as a reference guide to law enforcers and legal practitioners - police, inspectors, public prosecutors, defence councel, magistrates and judges- in the processing of environmental civil and criminal cases.

This compilation should prove invaluable to investors, entrepreneurs and industrial proponents, informing them of environmental requirements and procedures with resulting improved compliance. To facilitate this information transfer, an English translation is provided of key environmental laws and rules. Finally the book provides valuable legal information of Bangladesh public and non-government organizations dedicated to making action to protect the environment.
