Bangladesh to share ‘climate prosperity plan’ at COP26

0 14

Bangladesh plans to present its ‘climate prosperity plan’ aimed at mitigating the effects of global warming on economic development at the forthcoming UN climate talks in Glasgow, a Bangladeshi climate official says.

The plan envisions boosting renewable energy, making agriculture more resistant to climate shocks and finding solutions in nature to challenges posed by global warming, such as restoring mangroves to protect coasts from cyclones.

The South Asian nation says it will encourage other similarly vulnerable countries to draft their own plans.

Representatives of more than 200 countries will gather for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, known as COP26, from Oct 31 to Nov 12 in Glasgow, Scotland, to discuss new targets for cutting or curbing the growth of emissions that contribute to climate change.
