BEN Webinars

Bangladesh Environment Network has started a bi-monthly webinar series in June 2022. The two-hour webinars are held on the last Saturday of the month, every other month, at a time convenient for as many time zones of the world as possible, currently 10 AM US Eastern/NY Time. BEN experts from all over the world contribute to the discussion focused on issues related to the environment and climate in Bangladesh in a global context. One fourth of the session is dedicated to audience engagement that follows one or more keynote presentations and discussions. The webinars are held in Zoom and livestreamed in Facebook (FB). A flyer with the Zoom link to join the webinar is posted on the BEN FB group page and mailed to BEN mailing lists well ahead of the event. The links to the previous webinar videos, flyers and slides will be posted on this page as and when available.

Her research considers how water management and climate change impact society, especially focusing on intersectionality and social difference. Her latest book, Water Politics: Governance, Justice, and the Right to Water, investigates the relationships between human rights and access to clean water. Her next book, Confronting Climate Coloniality, analyzes the colonial legacies of climate change. The webinar is a conversation with Farhana about her ongoing work in and outside Bangladesh and future research plans.
