Cut carbon emission

Greens tell rich countries

Seven Bangladeshi climate network organisations yesterday urged the US, the EU and other rich countries to reduce their carbon emissions during a rally brought out ahead of Doha Climate Conference to be held from November 26 to December 7.
They criticised the developed countries, big corporations and the World Bank for their “climate profiteering” and “corporate captures of climate funds”.
They also implored the Bangladeshi delegation which will attend the Doha conference not to compromise on equity issues and to uphold the climate vulnerable countries' interests.
The environmentalists also demanded transparency and access of “adivasis” and “local communities” to the national and international climate funds.
The rally was organised by Bangladesh Poribesh Anodolon, Bangladesh Indigenous Peoples' Network on Climate Change and Biodiversity, Climate Change and Development Forum, Climate Finance Governance Network, Campaign for Sustainable Rural Livelihood, Equity and Justice Working Group Bangladesh and Network on Climate Change Bangladesh.
