Fighting Deforestation in Sri Lanka

By Savithri Sellapperumage Courtesy The Diplomat

Can Sri Lanka live up to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s environmental commitments?

The focus on Sri Lanka’s deforestation and the conservation of forests this year can be traced back to widespread discussions about deforestation in Wilpattu  National Park back in 2019.

The forest cover of Sri Lanka in 2019 was reported to be 16.5 percent, down fro...

Red Alert by Mother Nature : “SL forest density reduced from 85% to 16.5%”

Red Alert by Mother Nature : “SL forest density reduced from 85% to 16.5%”

According to Dr Ravindra Kariyawasam (Center for Environment & Nature Studies), Sri Lanka had a forest density of 82% in 1882. Fast forward to 2019, Sri Lanka’s forest density stands at a shocking 16.5%!

The people of Sri Lanka cut down 65.5% of the forests in a span of 137 years. Dr Kariyawasam says that this, maybe, due to the rise in population, development, construction of major dams and highways, and urbanization.

“The World Food and Health Organization ranked Sri Lanka as the 4th country with the highest rate of deforestation by 2010. We are holding the same position even now.” – he added.

Against such a backdrop where we are limited to mere terms as “Sustainable development” and “Green econom...
