Description

As one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to the impacts of climate change, Bangladesh has experienced first-hand the devastating impact it can have on people, the environment and the economy. The country has become a global leader on adapting to a changing climate and since 2016 has invested more than $6 billion dollars into adaptation activities.

This webinar features four exciting and innovative approaches from the UK and Bangladesh. Experts from each project provide an overview of their work, followed by a panel discussion and questions from the audience.

This event is part of the UK-Bangladesh Climate Partnership Forum virtual series which is building momentum on the journey to COP26.
