Achim Tröster, German Ambassador to Bangladesh, said that Germany would continue its cooperation in all activities related to tackling climate change’s impact and ongoing development in Bangladesh.



This cooperation will continue based on mutual talks and needs. In addition, Germany will continue to cooperate through the Paris Climate Agreement and the Green Climate Fund.

On Monday (September 2021), at the ministry’s meeting room, Achim Tröster said this in a courtesy call with Md. Shahab Uddin, Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC), (Bangladesh).

Iqbal Abdullah Harun, Acting Secretary of the MoEFCC, Bangladesh, and Sanjay Kumar Bhowmik, Additional Secretary of the Climate Change Division, were present during the occasion.

During the meeting, Md. Shahab Uddin informed the German Ambassador that as the President of Bangladesh Climate Vulnerability Forum (CVF) and Vulnerable-20, Bangladesh plays a significant role in the international arena of climate change. As the President of CVF, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has announced the ‘Mujib Climate Prosperity Plan’ for overall prosperity.



Meanwhile, the environment ministry hoped that world leaders would reach a consensus on donating 100 billion dollars annually to the climate-vulnerable countries as promised by the developed countries, Article 6 (Market Mechanism) including other issues regarding the Paris climate change agreement.

The Minister thanked BMZ (Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) and German development agency GIZ for their cooperation in updating “Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan‘ and forest management.

He also sought Germany’s cooperation in areas related to climate change, including technology transfer, capacity building, renewable energy, and the implementation of adaptation activities in urban areas.
