Advocate Syeda Rizwana Hasan
Advocate Syeda Rizwana Hasan Ms Hasan did her master's and graduation in law from the University of Dhaka with distinction. She started her career with BELA in 1993 and is still with the organisation today. As the chief executive of BELA, Ms Hasan is responsible for the overall coordination of Bela's activities, which include research, awareness raising, public interest litigation (PIL) and advocacy. Ms Hasan has filed PILs on various environmental issues, most of which have received favourable orders/ judgments. She has fought against vehicular pollution, river pollution, industrial pollution, shipbreaking, grabbing of wetlands, cutting of hills, unregulated mining, unplanned urbanisation, commercial shrimp cultivation, deforestation and loss of biodiversity. Her cases are redefining the current notion of development without regard for the environment. As an anthropocentric environmentalist, her efforts are adding value to the conventional human rights movement by bringing in the elements of environmental justice. She places people's legitimate rights at the centre of her activism. Ms Hasan is a recipient of the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize. She has been named as one of the 40 Environmental Heroes of the World by TIME magazine, recognising her impassioned leadership, hard-driving skill, and uncompromising courage in the campaign for judicial activism which has demonstrated that the right to environment is nothing less than a people's right to dignity and life, Ms Hasan was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award in 2012.
