Balancing Growth and Environmental Burden: Bangladesh's Climate Vulnerability

Bangladesh is one of the nations that is most at risk from the effects of global climate change. Even though it only contributes 0.51% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, it comes in at number seven on the global climate risk index and number nine in terms of mortality brought on by climate change. The vulnerability of the nation is made worse by its low elevation, dense population, and poverty levels. Land loss, water scarcity, a rise in natural disasters, and health problems are just a few of the devastating effects. Although it has made some adjustments, the government still has work to do to ensure that everyone has access to clean water and to reduce air pollution. Bangladesh needs to concentrate on adopting climate-smart practises, cutting carbon emissions, making the most of its resources, and fostering investment and innovation if it wants to achieve climate resilience.
