BD Should Claim ‘Compensation’ at COP21


The Bangladesh delegation to the COP 21 should not support any loan for climate change purpose; rather they should raise their voice for compensation for disasters caused by adverse effect of global warming, speakers at a roundtable said on Friday.  They said the developed countries can not avoid their responsibilities as their incessant and unplanned industrialisation has caused an increase in global temperature which is the key reason behind the climate change.

The observations were made at the roundtable titled “COP 21 and Technology Transfer: Expectation of Bangladesh” held in the Bangladesh Economic Association conference room. It was jointly organised by Bangladesh Unnayan Parishad (BUP) and the Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP). The roundtable was called on the eve of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)’s annual Conference of the Parties (COP 21) scheduled to start on November 30 in Paris.

In the roundtable, the climate change experts also stressed the need for focusing on technology transfer to the climate-vulnerable countries like Bangladesh at the Paris climate summit. Coordinator of Bangladesh Climate Change Negotiation Team at the COP 21 Dr Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad said the team would not support any proposal on loan for the climate change adaptation or mitigation purpose. He said the developed countries are responsible for the climate disasters and “we are the worst victims of the climate change.”

Increase in temperature, which is causing climate change, is a result of uncontrolled carbon emission by the developed countries.
