‘Govt to prepare integrated action plan on water’

BSS

The government is likely to formulate an integrated national plan of action on water to materialise the recommendations of the outcome document of the High Level Panel on Water (HLPW) to be published on March 14 next, reports BSS. “Based on the recommendations of the outcome document of the High Level Panel on Water, an integrated (national) plan of action would be framed on water, which will be suitable for Bangladesh,” said PM's Principal Secretary Md Nojibur Rahman. The Principal Secretary said this at a meeting held at the Prime Minister's Office yesterday before the formal launching of the outcome document on the HLPW.

The tenure of the HLPW will end on March 14, 2018 and after that the UN Secretary General and a high representative of the World Bank President will receive the final outcome document from the heads of state and government.

The outcome document on HLPW will also be shared at the WWF, Brasilia, on March 19 and a Special UN General Assembly on World Water Day on March 22.

Besides, the HLPW members are also committed to help implement their own recommendations. Principal Coordinator on SDG Affairs at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) Md Abul Kalam Azad moderated the meeting while Senior Secretary of the Ministry of Water Resources Dr Md Zafar Ahmed Khan, former PMO Senior Secretary Suraiya Begum, Local Government Division Secretary Abdul Malek, Acting PMO Secretary Sajjadul Hasan, environmental expert Dr Atiq Rahman and water expert Dr Ainun Nishat, among others, spoke. Two separate presentations on transformation of MDGs to SDGs and water were made at the meeting.

Abul Kalam Azad informed that Bangladesh has already selected two light house initiatives to deal with water issues.
