State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Mohammad Ali Arafat recently said that since the government is committed to protect environment, it will take an institutional approach to protect the fact-based journalism on climate and environmental issues.


"It is our central commitment to protect environment. If any journalist faces problems, created by so-called local influential people who are responsible for environment ruination, for reporting on environmental issues anywhere, we will ensure full support and protection for him or her," he said.


"If needed, we will take an institutional approach in this regard" added the state minister.


He gave the assurance to journalists at a discussion organized by the Jatiya Press Club (JPC) at Jahur Hossain Chowdhury Hall of the club here, marking the World Press Freedom Day with JPC President Farida Yasmin, MP, in the chair.


JPC General Secretary Shyamal Dutta delivered welcome address in the event while Director of the Climate Change Programme and Urban Development Program and Disaster Risk Management Program at BRAC Dr Liakat Ali presented the keynote paper.
