Bangladesh in the face of existential crisis due to adverse effects of climate: Environment Minister, Bangladesh

 Saber Hossain Chowdhury, Minister, Ministry of Forest, Environment and Climate Change (MoFECC), Bangladesh, commented that Bangladesh is facing an “existential crisis” due to climate change

He said, “There is no way to underestimate the adverse effects of climate. The reason is rising sea levels, melting ice, and increasing refugees.”

Saber Hossain Chowdhury was speaking to reporters after the inauguration of the two-day-long ninth international water conference organized by Action Aid at the ‘Six Season’ hotel in Gulshan, Dhaka on January 31, 2024. At this time, the Environment Minister also spoke about air pollution.



He said, “Air pollution in the country is mostly transboundary. Thirty-five percent of air pollution comes from here. Air pollution is now happening in the regional dimension.”

Saber Hossain thinks regional coordination is needed to reduce pollution. “It is a global problem. It cannot be solved alone. All must take joint initiative Stating that the government has taken a 100-day plan to prevent air pollution,” he described.

Saber Hossain continued and said, “Discussions will be made with various stakeholders to implement the plan. Even if various steps are mentioned, it is also necessary to see how much skill is there.”

Emphasizing the importance of water in sustainable development, Saber Hossain Chowdhury urged the government and private organizations to work together to ensure safe water.
