Climate Change and Bangladesh | D.Net

This Government of Bangladesh produced report discusses that the fate of Bangladesh and its people are directly linked to both mitigation and adaptation to climate change. Crucial actions are identified as:
• bringing the United States on board and persuading all responsible countries to take on mitigation targets
• encouraging large developing countries, for example, China and Brazil, to reduce their emissions
• ensuring that the principles of equity, rights, justice and entitlement are integral to a future agreement
International and regional consensus and action has a key role in supporting global and regional public goods for adaptation such as forecasting climate and weather, disaster response and more resilient crop varieties. However, strengthening positions within existing groups such as the Least Developed Countries and vulnerable countries are considered essential for Bangladesh to secure necessary outcomes from the international negotiations.
