Environmental groups from around the world (Climate Action Network, Timberwatch, Global Forest Coalition, and Friends of the Earth International) have joined together to protest the development of a coal power plant near the Sundarbans forest of Bangladesh. They believe the development would endanger women’s lives, irreparably damage the mangrove forest’s ecosystem, and threaten the livelihood of millions—including farmers, fishers, and forest dwellers. Displacement (due largely to the power plant’s construction) positions local women to live with an increased risk of gender-based violence, prostitution, and trafficking.
