UK team in city to asses climate impacts

A 14-member team of UK Royal College of Defence Studies (RCDS) arrived here yesterday for a week-long visit.
The aim of the tour is to examine at first hand and assess the country's vulnerabilities to the effects of climate change in terms of water, food and energy security, assuming a rise in sea-level over this coming century, said a British High Commission press release.
During the visit, the team will call on Service Chiefs and Principal Staff Officer of the Armed Forces Division. They will visit National Defense College and hold discussions on contemporary international issues. The team will also visit UK-funded climate change related projects in Dhaka and Khulna.
Desmond Bowen CB CMG, an adviser to the UK's Cabinet Office and the UN Secretary General's Advisory Board on Disarmament Matters, leads the tour group.
Lt Col Bertie Morris, Defense Adviser at the British High Commission in Dhaka, said: "The defense and security co-operation between the UK and Bangladesh has always been warm and intense. This visit is important, as it will allow the team to examine the main factors affecting water, food and energy security in Bangladesh, and look at opportunities for international and regional co-operation.
