Adverse impact of climate change

Dhaka seeks drastic actions on adaptation

UNB, Madrid

Mentioning that the adverse impacts of climate change will continue to strongly challenge lives and livelihoods, Environment, Forests and Climate Change Minister Md Shahab Uddin yesterday called for drastic actions on adaptation. "The climate crisis is an existential threat to many of us, and Bangladesh is one of the most climate vulnerable countries in the world. The adverse impacts of climate change would continue to challenge our lives and livelihoods severely unless we come up with drastic adaptation actions," he said. The minister came up with the remarks while speaking at the ministerial high-level segment at the Conference of the Parties (COP25) here.

He said Bangladesh has prepared the Delta Plan 2100 to address the adverse impacts of climate change through adaptive delta management. "It (Delta Plan) is a long-term strategy to implement action for sustainable delta development in Bangladesh. It'll also assist us to address the adverse impacts of climate change through adaptive delta management," he said. Working closely with stakeholders, Bangladesh hopes to harness international best practices and finance to ensure its successful implementation, the minister said, adding that in the year of action, Dhaka will be able to contribute substantially to the global actions to deal with the climate crisis.
