Bangladesh, UK seek to work together on tackling climate change

Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Md Shahab Uddin and the UK's Minister of State for Business, Energy and Clean Growth Anne-Marie Trevelyan affirmed this on Thursday during a virtual meeting.

Shahab Uddin said, "The developed and developing countries need to work together to tackle climate change."

The minister also sought more support from the UK, as a developed nation, for the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

UK-Bangladesh cooperation in different areas, particularly helping Dhaka ward off the adverse impacts of climate change, were all discussed during the meeting.

Shahab Uddin said, "Bangladesh is now playing the leadership role on climate change in international forums. Also, the full-fledged work on adapting to climate change has begun following the foundation of the regional office of the Global Center of Adaptation in Dhaka."
