Arial beel wetland in Munshigonj, Bangladesh
flood control, sediments, neutralising harmful bactaria, play a vital role in climate cahnge adoption and mitigation, constitute resources of economic, scientific, cultural, and recreational value for the community of Arial beel such as fishing, shell collecting, bird watching, swimming, and sailing. Bangladesh is signed country of two International convention to protect wetlands and biodiversity. First one is Ramsar convention and second is under United Nation framework convention of biological diversity. So, Bangladesh government decision to build airport in the wetland is clearly violation of this two International convention.
