About BRK

Buriganga Riverkeeper has been working to protect the Buriganga River through enforcement, monitoring and community action. Our movement works for swimmable, drinkable and fishable Buriganga. It works to achieve this goal through social movement, advocacy and legal measures that ensure water quality protections. The litigation, advocacy and community teams of Buriganga Riverkeeper conduct interconnected activities to accomplish this mission.

Buriganga Riverkeeper is the first Riverkeeper in Bangladesh. It is affiliated with Waterkeepers Bangladesh, a regional entity of Waterkeeper Alliance, the world’s fastest growing environmental movement that has been working since 1966. Waterkeepers Bangladesh is administered by Blue Planet Initiative (BPI), a nongovernment and non-profit organization.
