July 2, 2020. Another program “B for Belarus” on PRIMUS radio. This time the major theme of the program is “Belarus ecological dander zone”. We cover this theme with Vladimir Baranich, a country consultant and media analyst.
- Belarus in Environment Performance Index 2020 ranks 49th. The attitude of Belarusians to nature. Why do some many people pollute as if there is no tomorrow?
- The government and environment: dirty water in Minsk, polluting pulp plant in Svetlogorsk and a dangerous battery project in Brest. The three cases that demonstrate the way Belarusian authorities handle environment and manufacturing.
- Rule of law, transparency and accountability, independence of the judiciary as prerequisites of good environmental performance.
- Why Belarusians are neglectful about the environment.
