Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Shahab Uddin on Thursday said the Mujib Climate Prosperity Plan will provide a holistic pathway to success highlighting Bangladesh as a global benchmark across the world.

He said with the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) Presidency and the outstanding leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the Mujib Climate Prosperity Plan is currently underway.

The Minister said this in the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA), CVF and V20 Briefing and Reporting Session with the ministers arranged by Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change virtually from his official residence on Thursday.

He said this flagship project will be a significant step towards a green, nature-based and resilient recovery, post Covid-19 crisis impact. 

“We are taking necessary action to combat the damage due to climate change. Climate change is a survival battle for Bangladesh. Despite challenges, the Government of Bangladesh has been moving quickly and becoming a global example of climate change adaptation,” he said.

“We have already planted 11.5 million trees across the country to initiate a strategic, low carbon investment framework for growth and prosperity,” said the minister.
