MUST:

Stop Giving Coal Plants as Aid!

While people in Bangladesh face a double-disaster from COVID-19 and Cyclone Amphan, the growth of new coal plants planned in Bangladesh is set to make it worse.

 

The Government of Japan, through its development assistance agency JICA (the Japan International Cooperation Agency), is spending billions of dollars constructing new coal plants in the country.

More coal plants makes climate change impacts worse.

Right now, the Government of Japan is constructing the region’s biggest coal power plant - Matarbari II - in Bangladesh. It’s one of 29 coal plants planned for construction in the next 12 years. 

 

People in Bangladesh already experience the worst impacts of the climate crisis — and more coal plants makes climate change impacts worse.

Scientists predict that sea levels could rise twice as much as previously thought. This not only brings death and destruction, but also destroys farming land.

 

Another study showed that the growth of coal power could invite a health disaster. Tiny particles emitted from coal plants, when inhaled, can cause lung disease and lead to an early death. 


Global warming is also making cyclones more powerful. By raising the temperature of the sea to abnormally high levels, it adds strength to already destructive cyclones.

TELL THE GOVERNMENT OF JAPAN:

For the sake of our climate, stop funding coal plants in Bangladesh and Southeast Asia.

44 NGOs from 18 countries have called on Japan to stop financing the Matabari Coal-Fired Power Plant Phase II.
