Meetings to be held in Glasgow from November 1-12 

Md Shahab Uddin, the environment, forest and climate change minister, is leading the Bangladesh delegation at the two-day "COP26 July Ministerial" that began on Sunday in the United Kingdom (UK).

Shahab is expected to highlight Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s priorities at the COP26 as a state party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and also as the president of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF).

The UK-hosted July Ministerial is aimed to give an opportunity for the environment ministers of the state parties to the UNFCCC to come together in person to discuss their expectations for a successful COP26 scheduled in Glasgow this year from November 1 to 12.
