Environment

Like other places, we also face acute problem in keeping our environmental situation balanced , which has already been deteriorated a lot. Poverty, illiteracy, geographical diverse and severe climatic conditions as well as unawareness among the community all over in our country are the main reasons to it. As the area, especially the mountains which occupy 90% of the area, is devoid of greenery and forests and usage of forest produces as a fuel for cooking, rapid increase in population , un-checked and unlimited usage of chemicals and pesticides in agriculture and unawareness of community regarding hygiene, have all collectively imbalance the environmental situation in the area.

MWDOB feel the utmost necessity to adopt measures in order to give the community awareness to stop use of forest produces, minimum use of chemicals and pesticides and maintain the physical environment of houses, clusters, villages hygienically. MWDOB has resolved to take this major problems in hand in order to take steps for preservation of natural environment balanced so that the community could be benefited generation to generation. We need help to overcome the environmental issues.
