Abstract

Environmentalism and its movement is getting importance day by day towards conscious citizen, consumers, businessmen, government and environtalist of a country. The environmental movement concept, its method for framing legislative proposals and policies are old-fashioned in the country like Bangladesh. Thinking of the environment as a “thing” has had enormous implications for how environmentalists conduct their policies. Country like Bangladesh is struggling to fulfill the basic components like to his people/Citizen. This is why, our government and its stakeholder never emphasizes on this issues due to priority problems. After that, it is getting now bigger issue as our land, water and other natural resources are limited in the light of real necessity. USA, UK, Germany and other rich countries tried to accommodate environmental friendly plan, policies with their production, product, natural resources like river, seas, mines, valleys and mountain etc. As a third world country, Bangladesh can take the lesson from those country specially USA to redesign the environmental policy for their own needs.
