The next conference of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) will be held in 2021 commemorating the "Mujib Borsho" (Mujib Year).

"CVF President and former UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon informed this when he phoned Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wednesday afternoon," said the premier’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim.

The press secretary said that Ban Ki-moon made the phone call to the prime minister around 6:10pm and talked with her for nearly 12 minutes on different issues including the CVF Conference and the Global Centre on Adaptation Conference.

Karim said the Global Centre on Adaptation Conference will be held in the second week of September next and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the conference, while Ban Ki-moon will join it virtually.

The press secretary said the former UN secretary general highly appreciated the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for combatting the coronavirus situation and super cyclone “Amphan” with courage.

In this connection, Ban Ki-moon opined that the people of Southeast Asia will have to be built as resilient so that they can tackle situations like Covid-19 pandemic and cyclone Amphan.

The ex-UN secretary general extended her heartiest congratulations to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on her election as the CVF chair for the second time.

He also congratulated Saima Wazed Hossain, chairperson of the National Advisory Committee on Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Autism, as she has been made as a “Thematic Ambassador” by the CVF.

At the outset of the talks, the prime minister and former UN secretary general exchanged greetings.

The prime minister thanked Ban Ki-moon for making a phone call to her, Karim added.

The CVF is a global partnership of 48 countries that are disproportionately affected by the consequences of global warming.

In December last year, at the 25th Annual Conference of Parties (COP25), known as the UN Climate Change Conference, in Paris Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina accepted a proposal of Marshall Islands President Hilda Heine to take over the charge of the chair of CVF from this year.
