Bangladesh seeks financial support for climate vulnerable countries

Bangladesh sought financial support for the climate vulnerable countries at a ministerial-level meeting, in London, to ensure effective adaptation actions.

Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Md. Shahab Uddin said at the meeting that long-term and adequate financial support is a prerequisite for achieving the global goal on adaptation (GGA).

He said both technical and financial support are needed to be provided to the most vulnerable developing countries for the effective implementation of prioritised adaptation actions.

The minister said this while addressing the plenary session of "The July Ministerial" of the COP 26 Presidency held Sunday, according to the ministry.

The environment minister said Bangladesh is in the process of formulation of the NAP with a view to reducing vulnerability to the impacts of climate change by enhancing adaptive capacity and resilience.

“However, we are aware of the lack of resources for NAP implementation. We must consider the adequacy and effectiveness of support for adaptation,” he continued.

COP 26 President Alok Sharma presided over the session.

Secretary of the ministry of environment Md. Mostafa Kamal and Director General of the Department of Environment Md. Ashraf Uddin, along with ministers and representatives of invited countries were present on the occasion.
