Development Matters: Tackling Climate Change in Bangladesh Thu, 2010-03-25 12:06

The dramatic impact of climate change in low-lying Bangladesh and new efforts to mitigate its consequences are explored in this wide-ranging interview.
Professor Mizan Khan, of North South University, Bangladesh, describes how Bangladeshi researchers are sharing their experiences with their UK counterparts to help improve research and policy at national and international levels. He also criticises the outcome of last year’s climate change negotiations in Copenhagen, and highlights the win-win solutions associated with renewable energy and the health benefits of reducing carbon emissions.
