Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday said Bangladesh, as chair of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) is determined to uphold the interests of climate vulnerable countries and promote locally driven adaptation solutions.
"As chair of the Climate Vulnerable Forum or CVF, and host to the South Asian office of the Global Centre on Adaptation, Bangladesh's key focus is on upholding the interests of climate vulnerable countries and to promote locally led adaptation solutions," she said, addressing the 2021 P4G Seoul Summit.
She noted that Bangladesh has adopted the 100 year Delta Plan 2100 that focuses on the efficient use and preservation of water.
"Bangladesh is the first LDC to establish a 'Climate Change Trust Fund' from its own resources. Every year we spend about 5 billion US dollars on climate adaptation and mitigation measures," she added.
Sheikh Hasina further said, the National Solar Energy Action Plan 2021-2041 ensures generation of up to 40 Giga Watt of renewable energy by 2041.
The prime minister urged Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 (P4G) stakeholders to campaign more for its action oriented approach, and to engage more financiers, innovators, policymakers and creative entrepreneurs in P4G focus areas.
"We, the participating leaders at the P4G Summit, need to work more closely towards a greener future for our next generation," she added.
