Climate change conference

Right bodies urge for better climate dialogue preparation

UNB

Rights bodies on Thursday urged the government to get better prepared for next round of facilitative dialogue due in January 2018 under the initiative of the climate change conference of parties (CoP 24) to make the case stronger for most vulnerable countries (MVCs), reports UNB. They urged for presenting strong evidence-base context in receiving of global support for the MVCs.

They raised the demand at a press conference titled “CoP 23 Outcome: Govt. Must be Prepared with strong evidence-base context for Next Facilitative Dialogue 2018 under CoP 24” held at Dhaka Reporters Unity in the city organised by eight rights based organisations, including BCAS (Bangladesh Centre for Advance Study), Forum on Environmental Journalist, Bangladesh-FEJB, EquityBD and Climate Journalist Forum-CJF.

Moderated by Rezaul Karim Chowdhury of EquityBD, the press conference was addressed, among others by Dr Atiq Rahaman of BCAS, Quamrul Islam Chowdhury of FEJB and Md. Motahar Hossen of Bangladesh Climate Change Journalist Forum (BCJF). Briefing note on CoP 23 outcome was presented by Aminul Hoque.

In his speech, Dr Atiq Rahaman said that good progress has been made in CoP 23 on agriculture and gender action but little progress was achieved in global issues like temperature goal.

This is also good sign that Bangladesh has re-elected in four working groups at the CoP. Next facilitative dialogue is a chance for Bangladesh to get effective result and further need to work intensively, he said.

Rezaul Karim Chowdhury said that Bangladesh has been participating in CoP comparatively taking less preparation. This is why, since last couple of years it has been very difficult to assess country's position and also difficult for civil society organisations (CSOs) to play appropriate pro-government role in CoP.
