Realigning our approach to energy We cannot deny that the recent energy crisis that has plagued
countries is an unfortunate setback, but at the same time we can see how we source energy from a new perspective.We have long relied on fossil fuel-based power generation methods such as coal-based power generation. Not only is it unreliable and expensive, it also sends the wrong message to climate-sensitive countries like Bangladesh.
Therefore, this recent energy crisis is a great opportunity to switch to more environmentally friendly and more renewable energy sources, such as solar power.
Fortunately, the crisis is already acting as an incentive for various companies to enter the green energy business. For that reason, it was encouraging to see a series of solar signs installed throughout the capital in to reduce the burden on the country’s power grid today.
Of course, the ultimate goal of a sustainable country is to eliminate the sign altogether, but for now this is a practical solution.
The important point here is that organizations are willing to rely on how green energy is produced for their own consumption. If this continues, we can expect that most of the country’s industry will focus on using green energy for its domestic operations. And when the commercial demand for green energy reaches such a high level, the supply of green energy cannot be delayed much.
This is a commendable initiative. Governments also need to incentivize ready-to-use solutions like these that prioritize the use of sustainable energy.
The Government of Bangladesh has achieved the extraordinary feat of making the two districts homeless, which is a significant achievement. Under the
government’s Ashrayan project, 26,229 homes were distributed to landless families in Panchagal and Magra. The government has to double its efforts to tackle the homeless problem as the average Bangladesh as a roof needs little to stay and the country will soon abandon its LDC status.
Fortunately, this latest milestone in the government’s Ashrayan project shows that the seriousness of the arrest warrant is addressing this issue and that we are on track to resolve it.
According to data collected in 2019, Bangladesh has up to 5 million homeless people. Looking at the city, the statistics are almost impossible to draw due to the crowds of the city, the people on the sidewalks and the unsanitary conditions of the slums. The
government has a list of nearly 1 million people planning to provide half-pukka buildings as part of the Ashrayan project, but there are still about 4 million homeless people, most of them.
