Danish climate minister arrives today
Danish Minister for Climate and Energy Connie Hedegaard arrives today to open a conference on 'Bangladesh on the road to Copenhagen - towards a global deal on climate change at COP15, December 2009'.
The conference takes place on February 3 at Westin Hotel in the capital.
During her stay, Hedegaard will meet with government leaders and visit climate change vulnerable areas in the country's southern coastal belt.
She is Denmark's first minister for climate and energy.
Ever since August 2004, when she was appointed as Danish Minister for the Environment, Hedegaard has been striving to raise national and international focus on climate issues.
These endeavours are now culminating in the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in 2009; the goal of which is to agree on an ambitious global climate agreement.
