I am working climate change issues in Bangladesh. At the same time I am tracking climate change issues and negotiations locally and internationally. As you know Bangladesh is the most vulnerable country due to climate change. This country has not enough skill to deal with climate negotiations. I am trying as my personal level to raise the voice for the government of Bangladesh to deal better negotiations for international level. I have a blog Climate Change Issues Negotiations and Bangladesh Position where I’m tracking the latest information about the climate policy and other relevant initiative to disseminate to the maximum number of people.
