UK PM to announce international coalition to fight climate change; Bangladesh included

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce a new international coalition, which includes Bangladesh, to tackle the impacts of climate change.

In a virtual address to the Netherlands-hosted Climate Adaptation Summit, the first ever global summit focused solely on adaptation and resilience, beginning today, Boris will launch the Adaptation Action Coalition, according to a press statement issued by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) today.

Developed by the UK in partnership with Egypt, Bangladesh, Malawi, the Netherlands, Saint Lucia and the United Nations, this new coalition will work to turn international political commitments made through the United Nations Call for Action on Adaptation and Resilience into on-the-ground support for vulnerable communities, reads the statement.
