Back Ground

The International Institute of Bengal Basin (IIBB) headquartered in Berkeley, California (USA), is a non-profit organization registered in the USA and India.  IIBB has been devoted to reducing the impact of toxic chemicals in the Bengal Basin. It accomplishes its work through the contributions of experts, scholars, pubic officials from top universities, environmental groups, and other institutes from throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. The IIBB’s challenge is in mitigating crucial problems of life in the Bengal Basin and beyond where many millions of lives are now being threatened due to man-induced destruction of the environment in collusion with disregard for basic human rights. IIBB acts as platform to address the problem and encourage intellectual leaders of the Bengal Basin to lead in the campaign to address the world’s most complex environmental and human problems.  Experience gained from research and the IIBB’s other efforts will also contribute to a working model to lift other emerging economies and people’s. IIBB also seeks to encourage Bengal Basin scholars and activists to share knowledge and work together, so they can provide consulting services that are far more cost-than those currently being applied in the region. 

Objectives:

(1)   To utilize all possible and available natural resources to uplift the socio-economic status of the rural people through sustainable agriculture and the development of scientific farming systems in the Bengal Basin with an eye toward further reductions of land due to global warming and its associated rises in sea level and increasing demand caused by growing populations.

(2)   To examine the environmental problems of the Bengal Basin, explore solutions, raise awareness of the impact of pollutants and build up a network of communications between local Bengali, non-resident Bengali and western experts to focus attention and to mitigate the problems of everyday life in the Bengal Basin.

(3)   To develop the Bengal Basin as a self-sustaining, self-motivating, self-financing and self-perpetuating, socially acceptable and viable unit of growth by adopting need-based location-specific agro-technologies.

(4)   To organize scientific seminars, symposiums, conferences and conventions, as required to further IIBB’s objectives.
