  • Tackling climate change

    Now that the challenge of tackling global climate change has been universally accepted by all countries and people (with the notable exception of Mr Trump and his cronies in the White House and Federal US government) through the Paris Agreement, it is important for all countries, companies, NGOs, universities and other relevant stakeholders to share knowledge and hard technology for mitigation as well as adaptation across countries both North-to-South, South-to-South, and perhaps even, South-to-North.
  • Trump will make the US face loss and damage claims

    I want to focus on a little known Article of the Paris Agreement, which may well come to haunt the US and will be an unintended consequence of the US withdrawing from it.
  • Bangladesh needs to promote climate diplomacy

    On that note, today, I will try to make the case why every new diplomat from Bangladesh needs to be climate literate, if not a climate expert.
  • How Bangladesh can achieve SDG 13 and climate change goals

    At the turn of the century, under the United Nations, all countries agreed to try to achieve a set of ten Millennium Development Goals
  • Backtracking on the Paris Agreement

    The only consequence for the rest of the world if the US stays in it is a very negative one of having to fight them on every little issue in the negotiations, as they will inevitably try to hold back all our actions.
