Abstract

This paper primarily illustrated Bangladesh’s international legal standard and domestic legal approach to coastal and marine environment conservation. The nature and causes of coastal and marine environment pollution, including a range of land, vessel, and air-based contamination, were also described. It examines the international legal framework for the conservation of the coastal and marine environment, as well as Bangladesh’s international obligations.  Further it demonstrates the existing legal framework of Bangladesh regarding protection of coastal and marine environment and identifies its inconsistency with international standard. Finally, it makes a few recommendations for improving the current state of Bangladesh’s domestic legal framework in order to appropriately safeguard the coastal and marine environment.

Keywords: Coastal Environment, Marine Environment, Pollution, Protection, International Obligation, International Standard, Legal Framework, Bangladesh
