National Committee for Saving the Sundarbans (NCSS) is a coalition of over 50 organisations dedicated to protecting the natural biodiversity and cultural heritage of the Sundarbans — the world’s largest mangrove forest — which is facing serious threats from large-scale projects such as Rampal and Orion coal-fired power plants, encroachment by powerful interests, deforestation, and the effects of climate change such as sea level rise, salinity intrusion and devastating cyclones.

NCSS has been in operation for 04 years since 2012, and has organised and taken part in numerous dialogues, press conferences, rallies, and other events across Bangladesh to raise awareness among the people, and advocate for responsible solutions with policymakers.
