Worsening air pollution

Dhaka’s air quality is deteriorating day by day. Dhaka was recently ranked as the second most polluted city as per the Air Quality Index. This is no surprise to city dwellers who have to brave the air pollution on a daily basis. The lethal combination of dust, vehicular emissions and industrial pollution is perhaps one of the biggest environmental threats to people’s wellbeing at present. Unplanned urbanisation and the lack of implementation of environmental laws have led to this horrible situation. Moreover, there seems to be a severe lack of awareness among people who barely take any precautions, such as wearing face masks, to protect themselves from air pollution. The government must take this issue seriously and take immediate steps to prevent the air quality from deteriorating further.
