Bangladesh has the worst air pollution in the world and Dhaka is the worst city for air pollution. Study shows that in Dhaka city, air pollution increased by at least 7% in 2021 compared to the previous five years. Dhaka’s annual economic damage from air pollution has been calculated at USD 192 million. On the other hand, another study conducted by CPE shows that Dhaka possesses methane concentration more than the global average. As a result, temperature is rising almost every year and health hazards also increasing with time. In this regard, CPE envisions engaging youths and young journalists in the prevention of methane gas emissions in Bangladesh.
