Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan 2008

Ministry of Environment and Forests Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh
Created: 7/14/2014 - Updated: 1/25/2019

Abstract

Bangladesh is one of the most climate vulnerable countries in the world and will become even more so as a result of climate change. Floods, tropical cyclones, storm surges and droughts are likely to become more frequent and severe in the coming years. These changes will threaten the significant achievements Bangladesh has made over the last 20 years in increasing incomes and reducing poverty, and will make it more difficult to achieve the MDGs.
