RELOCATION OF HAZARIBAGH TANNERY: MYTH OR REALITY? ab 49 EURO An Analysis from Environmental-Economics Aspect in the context of Bangladesh
Tanneries are the oldest industries in Bangladesh of which 95 percent are concentrated in Hazaribagh area of Dhaka city. All the industries follow both manual and mechanical processing technique. Due to semi-mechanized processing technique and improper waste management huge polluting substances are discharged by the tannery units to the Hazaribagh area as well as to the Buriganga River without treatment. These waste cause serious health hazards to human and aquatic lives of adjacent area as well as overall Dhaka City. As a result, shifting of these tannery units are demanded by local people, different social and environmental movement body, government, NGOs, Dhaka WASA and different international organizations particularly UNIDO. After relocation of the tanneries, this area will certainly create a huge planning opportunity to execute. From the above perspective it is anticipated that this study is going to open a new window for urban brownfield development practices in Bangladesh and will carry a significant role to sustain a better Dhaka City.
Leather industry is one of the export oriented industries of Bangladesh which is gaining both economic and industrial importance now a day. The migration of leather tanning activity from developed to developing countries over the past four decades has also helped this manufacturing activity to increase. The main tannery area is at Hazaribagh in Dhaka. Since precautionary and protective measures have not been taken from the beginning, the environmental condition of Hazaribagh area has been deteriorating for many years. Eventually, it fosters the need of securing this development and growth of tanneries by ensuring the environmental security of the tanning sector and government has launched a relocation project of tannery industries from Hazaribagh to a new area located at Savar. But this relocation project proves to go in vain because of unwillingness to move of the tannery owners and in terms of the cost effectiveness and potential environmental threat of the new area. The redevelopment of the Hazaribagh area after relocation is also seemed to be impossible due to the enormous risk of consequence of the polluted soil, air and water to the human body and structure.
