The speakers said Bangladesh is bearing the burden of excessive carbon emissions caused by industrialized nations primarily responsible for global warming, a great challenge for the planet

Speakers at a seminar in Khulna on Wednesday laid emphasis on taking rights based initiatives for rehabilitation of climate change victims.

Many people across the country have become refugees due to various reasons caused by the adverse impact of climate change, including floods, river bank erosion, and cyclones, they told the seminar, ‘Rights based protection of Climate Change Refugee,” held at a city hotel.

Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Helal Hossain, Prof Golam Sarwar of Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (Kuet), Prof Golam Mostafa Sarwar, and representatives of various government and non-government organizations, among others, addressed the seminar.

The speakers said Bangladesh is bearing the burden of excessive carbon emissions caused by industrialized nations primarily responsible for global warming, a great challenge for the planet.

Despite contributing very little to global carbon emissions, Bangladesh is one of the countries most vulnerable to the adverse impacts of global warming, they observed, adding that the responsible nations must provide financial and technical support to the climate change victim countries.

As Bangladesh is facing adverse impacts of climate change, it is urgent for the country to raise its voice to get adequate financial support from green climate funds to make it a climate-resilient country, they said.
