A trip through Sri Lanka: an account of the environmental situation in this country

Plastic pollution in Sri Lanka, a current issue at world level in environmental terms, and a study that reports about the presence of high levels of mercury in the local population where there is a Chinese-built coal-fired power station, are some of the issues Sri Lankan activist, Hemantha Withanage, made reference to in an interview with Real World Radio.

The Centre for Environmental Justice – Friends of the Earth Sri Lanka also produced its first position on single use plastics and a publication about safeguarding people and the environment from so-called “development projects”.

The interview with the activist is an account of the environmental situation in Sri Lanka and the measures to face it.
