Germany will increase support to Bangladesh in tackling climate change: envoy

German Ambassador in Dhaka Achim Troster  today said Germany will increase its cooperation in tackling the impacts of  climate change and in the ongoing development programmes in Bangladesh.

  Referring to Bangladesh as a very close ally of Germany, the German envoy  said this cooperation would be provided on the basis of mutual talks and  expectations. 

  Troster said this while paying a courtesy call on Environment, Forest and  Climate Change Ministry Md Shahab Uddin at the Secretariat here.

   Appreciating the development and progress of Bangladesh and the dynamic  leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the German Ambassador said  Germany would continue its cooperation through the Paris Climate Agreement  and the Green Climate Fund. 

  Acting Secretary of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change  Iqbal Abdullah Harun and Additional Secretary of the Climate Change Wing  Sanjay Kumar Bhowmik were present on the occasion.

   Shahab Uddin said the German Ambassador that Bangladesh is playing a  significant role in the international arena on climate change as the  President of Climate Vulnerability Forum (CVF) and Vulnerable-20. 

   As the President of CVF, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has announced 'Mujib  Climate Prosperity Plan' for overall prosperity, he said. 

   The Environment Minister hoped that the world leaders would reach a  consensus on providing 100 billion dollars annually by rich countries to the  climate vulnerable countries to help those tackle climate change impacts.

  Shahab Uddin thanked BMZ and German development agency GIZ for cooperation  in updating Bangladesh's 'Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan' 
and assisting in forest management.

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