The US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl Miller said that the US government will provide necessary assistance to the Chittagong Hill Tracts to ensure sustainable forestry management, in order to fight climate change and maintain ecological balance.

The US envoy made the remark while speaking to reporters after his visit to the Strengthening Inclusive Development in Chittagong Hill Tracts (SID-CHT) project in Rangamati’s Kaptai upazila on Wednesday.  

Claiming that Bangladesh is endowed with unparalleled natural beauty, Miller said its hill regions are rich in natural resources, which if properly preserved the region will gain popularity in the world.

“The USAID and UNDP are jointly working to improve the regional population’s standard of living. So, I came to see the ongoing development works,” he added.

Meanwhile, the envoy’s companion USAID Mission Director Derrick Brown said: “We have begun training the regional Fire Service and Civil Defence members to combat any sort of natural disaster.”

The organization wishes to provide such services nationwide with the Bangladesh government, he added.

Under the SID-CHT project, the American diplomat visited the 40 acres of reserved land where 32,000 seeds of various plant species planted in the Bangchhari area of the Kaptail upazila.

During the visit, the Ambassador spoke to the project beneficiaries of the region.
