Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Saber Hossain Chowdhury said that research will be given top priority and importance in the funding of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change and its subsidiary Bangladesh Climate Change Trust (BCCT) Fund. He said that research needs to be increased in the country to solve various problems, and it is not possible to depend on research from other countries. For this reason, all-out assistance will be provided to researchers and scientists for their research work in the development of science and technology.

He said this while speaking as the chief guest at a program organized by the Bangladesh Foundation for Development Research (BFDR) of the University of Skill Enrichment and Technology (USET) at the National Press Club in the capital on Saturday (February 03, 2024) to felicitate Dr. Mohammad Mazharul Islam, a senior researcher in the Department of Chemistry at Cardiff University in the United Kingdom, for receiving the prestigious ‘IChemE Global Award 2023’ in Chemistry.

The Environment Minister said that Dr. Mohammad Mazharul Islam’s achievement is a testament to the growing interest of the global community in the contributions of Bangladeshi scientists to the field of knowledge and science. He said that Dr. Mazharul Islam’s research work will not only enrich the knowledge of chemistry but also play an important role in the development of our country. The minister also called upon everyone to work together to improve the environment of the country.

The meeting, which was chaired by Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, Patron of the University of Skill Enrichment and Technology, was also addressed by Professor Dr. Md. Fazlul Haque, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of USET, Dr. M. Asaduzzaman, former Research Director and Economist of Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS), and intellectual and columnist Dr. Monayem Sarkar, among others.
