About WKB

home_header_bg2Waterkeepers Bangladesh has been working to protect the water and water bodies of Bangladesh including its forests resources through enforcement, fieldwork and community action. We work to achieve this goal through social movement, advocacy and legal measures that ensure water quality protections. Our litigation, advocacy and community teams conduct interconnected activities that serve this mission.

Waterkeepers Bangladesh is a regional entity of Waterkeeper Alliance, the world’s fastest growing environmental movement that has been working since 1966. Along with over 290 Waterkeeper organizations in 34 countries, our movement works for swimmable, drinkable and fishable waterways worldwide.

At present Waterkeepers Bangladesh is conducting operation in Bangladesh to protect its rivers through Buriganga Riverkeeper, Surma River Waterkeeper, Khowai River Waterkeeper and Pashur River Waterkeeper.

Waterkeepers Bangladesh is administered by Blue Planet Initiative (BPI), a non governmental and not for profit organization.
