Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Md Shahab Uddin said Bangladesh will reduce 89.47 million tons CO2 emission by 2030.
Joining virtually in the LDC Ministerial Meeting held in Bhutan’s Thimphu today, Shahab Uddin said they have already submitted their NDCs [National Climate Action Plans] to UNFCCC mentioning the targets.
The minister said this target is equivalent to a 21.85 percent reduction in emissions.
Shahab Uddin also said Bangladesh is in the process of finalising their national adaptation plans [NAPs].
He said developed countries should lead global efforts to achieve climate goals.
“The world leaders should also emphasize on the progress of putting forward long-term low emission development strategy,” he added.
