While COP26 continues in Glasgow in Scotland, US Ambassador in Dhaka Earl Miller along with the envoys of Japan, Australia and European Union visited US government climate resilience projects in Cox’s Bazar and traveled to St Martin’s Island to assess the effects of climate change and learn about local adaptation efforts.
“COP26 in Glasgow is a pivotal moment at the start of this decisive decade to tackle the climate crisis,” Ambassador Miller said. “The climate crisis is here. This is not a challenge for future generations. Together, we must confront it today.”
Prior to his trip to St Martin’s, Ambassador Miller visited USAID climate resilience projects where US investments have helped farmers adapt new techniques to overcome soil salinity, use organic pest control, and plant new trees while protecting existing natural resources.
