Yesterday we had Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, His Excellency Dr. A.K. Abdul Momen Saida Muna Tasneem High Commissioner of Bangladesh in the UK & Ireland discussing collaborative global climate action ahead of COP26 under the title “Climate change and the need for adaptation” co-organised by Bangladesh High Commission & Chatham House. We also had the former President of the Maldives in attendance, Muhammad Nasheed.
He stated that as chair of Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF), it is important for Bangladesh to support member countries gain technology, financing in climate adaptation, resilience building and amplify their voices during COP26. The CVF and COP26 also need to join hands for a successful CVF Dhaka-Glasgow declaration and organise a leaders summit at sidelines of the world leaders summit.
