Stop Rampal Coal Power Plant!

South Asians for Human Rights (SAHR) advocates the governments of Bangladesh and India to immediately stop the construction of the coal power plant in Rampal, Bangladesh.

The National Thermal Power Corporation of India (NTPC) in collaboration with the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDP) is in the process of setting up a 1,320MW coal fired power plant in Rampal which is situated approximately 14km from the Sundarbans, the largest remaining mangrove forest in the world and a Ramsar and a World Heritage Site.

SAHR sent a fact finding mission to Rampal in April 2015 to investigate the impact of the construction of the coal power plant on the people and the environment. Since the release of the mission report in 2015

( ), SAHR has been advocating along with the numerous environmentalists and the civil society activists and others for the immediate halt of the construction of the power plant.

As a follow up to the Fact finding report and to strengthen the advocacy SAHR has making an effort to collate and display all the English language news paper articles and other relevant documents on this web page.
