Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen requested support in the form of climate financing, for rehabilitation of climate migrants, and transfer of green technology to address the challenges of climate change.

He made this request when he met the Head of IMF and the Dutch Ministers in separate bilateral meetings on the side lines of the meeting of the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands on Monday.

The Bangladesh Foreign Minister held bilateral meeting with Barbara Visser, Dutch Minister for Infrastructure and Water Management.

In the meeting, Momen sought support of the Netherlands in implementation of the different projects under the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100. He also explained the necessity of embankments to protect from sea-level rise, river erosion and floods, said a press statement of the Foreign Ministry on Tuesday.

The Foreign Minister also requested Dutch advice and assistance in building embankments and dykes in this regard. He also suggested that the Dutch Government should support Bangladesh in water management in the Special Economic Zones (SEZ) that is being developed in different places in Bangladesh.
