Bangladeshi scientist Prof Saleemul Huq has made it to the coveted list of global climate change influencers.

Prof Huq is the director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) at Independent University, Bangladesh.

He has, in fact, been ranked fourth among the world's top 20 'Climate Change Influencers' by UK-based online marketing platform Onalytica.

In its report, "Environmental Sustainability: A Study into Tech Brands’ Perception & Impact', Onalytica analyzed the influencers' topical influence on Twitter and LinkedIn, "as well as how much they are referenced within blogs and online media".

The influencers on the list reach an engaged audience of two million.

"We are excited to congratulate Prof Saleemul Huq on his ranking as fourth in the top 20 'Climate Change Influencers' in the world report by Onalytica," the British High Commission in Dhaka said Wednesday.
