Fund allocated to tackle climate change not sufficient: Saber

Staff Reporter:

Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Saber Hossain Chowdhury yesterday said that the allocated Tk 35,000 crore from 24 ministries in the current fiscal year is insufficient to combat climate change.
The United Nations will provide substantial funding to Bangladesh through its various agencies to com-bat climate change, he said.
At that time, Chowdhury emphasized the need for increased financial support.
Discussions were held with the UN delegation on sourcing additional funds for climate mitigation and adaptation efforts through various UN channels, he said.
The Minister was talking to reporters following a bilateral meeting with UN Resident Coordinator Gwyn Lewis at his residence in Paribagh in the capital yesterday.
Louise Barber, senior development coordination officer and strategic planner, was also present on the occasion.
Highlighting the focus on securing international financial support to address climate change impacts, Lewis reiterated the UN’s commitment to collaborate closely with Bangladesh on climate resilience strat-egies, including the implementation of national adaptation plans, advocacy, flood control and communi-ty-based adaptation measures.
She praised Bangladesh’s leadership in environmental conservation and pledged continued UN support for the country’s sustainable development goals.
The meeting also discussed collaborative efforts to tackle critical environmental challenges such as de-forestation, biodiversity loss, and plastic pollution.
Lewis and Chowdhury explored avenues to strengthen partnerships between the UN and Bangladesh in environmental protection and sustainable development initiatives.
