$230 bn needed by 2030 to implement National Action Plan on climate change

Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Shahab Uddin today (August 28) said Bangladesh requires USD 230 billion by 2030 to implement various activities to tackle climate change.

Under the newly formed National Action Plan on Climate change, the minister said, a total of 113 types of activities were identified under eight thematic areas.

Certainly, the government of Bangladesh will mobilise domestic resources to implement those activities, he said.

“But, without international and bilateral support, it would be very difficult for us to implement and attain climate resilience,” the minister said.

We are looking forward to the USD 100 billion funding committed by the developed countries to tackle climate change.

Shahab Uddin said this in the conference room of the ministry while a delegation led by British High Commissioner to Bangladesh Robert Chatterton Dickson called on him.

Britain will provide necessary assistance to Bangladesh in related activities to combat the effects of climate change, medical waste management and research, Dickson said.

Referring to Bangladesh and Britain as very close allies, the British high commissioner also said that the ongoing cooperation of Britain will continue at an increasing pace.
