Opposition leader Sajith Premadasa has said that countries like Indonesia are currently doing green accounting and that Sri Lanka definitely needs it. He said that through this a definite estimate of the nationally important environmental and wildlife resources of the country could be obtained.
He said that on the one hand, the environmental and wildlife resources of the country would be assessed and on the other hand, there would be a financial value in this regard.
The Leader of the Opposition pointed out that the calculation of the damage to the environment is not done in the GDP calculation criteria and it should be done as well.
Sajith Premadasa said this while donating 10 water filters and a television set to the Yala Welfare and Charitable Society on the occasion of World Wildlife Day through the Samagi Jana Balawegaya’s ‘Green Project – Project Leopard’ project.
