Climate Change in Bangladesh

Posted in 1 by Khaled Saifullah on April 20, 2009

Rapid global warming has caused fundamental changes to our climate. No country and people know this better than Bangladesh, where millions of people are already suffering. Sudden, severe and catastrophic floods have intensified and taking place more frequently owing to increased rainfall in the monsoon. Over the last ten years, Bangladesh has been ravaged by floods of catastrophic proportion in 1998, 2004 and 2007. Heavy downpour over short spell has resulted in landslides. Cold spell claims human lives as well as damage crops. Droughts often affect even coastal districts. Bad weather keeps the coastal waters risky for fishing expeditions. Damages and losses due to climatic extremes like floods, cyclones, tornados, and droughts are phenomenal to the victims as well as the state. These are early signs of global warming effects.

    We need to stop subsidizing the auto and sprawl. The best way is to make public transport free and gradually eliminate the private auto. There is a worldwide movement to do just that.

    World Centre for Democracy Practice also aware about climate change affect on Bangladesh and other affected countries of the whole world. After independent of Bangladesh, this country faced many natural disaster because of climate change and its related affects on Bangladesh nature. Those who live beside sea belt and on the shore of the river, they are the most affected people by the climate change issue. Our honourable prsident Mr.Shahariar Imam is also a honourable volunteer citizen of Hopenhagen climate change international conference held 2009 in Denmark. He supported cause of Bangladesh, Philipine, Maldive, Sri Lanka, Nepal & other all affected area by climate change in the whole world, requested all international community by Hopenhagen organization and WCDP jointly to impliment Keyoto protocal 1997. But China one of the major destroyer of climate change of the world given veto and without hope Copenhagen International climate change conference failed. So we are requesting Bangladesh Govt. to work shoulder to shoulder with WCDP along with other partners jointly to take a joint scientific sustainable effort to solve the climate change problem in Bangladesh. Our expert Prof. Dr.M.I Zuberi is working in Bangladesh in this line and suggested to take a long term adoptation policy of climate change related issue.
