Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina recently called for ensuring $100 billion a year for developing countries to save them from climate change impacts as she placed a four-point proposal including "establishing climate justice" at a virtual "Climate Vulnerable Leaders' Event".
She also informed that her government has decided to launch a program to develop national "Mujib Climate Prosperity Plan" to help mobilize resources for the implementation of a new pathway to secure the future of the people.
"We should ensure that at least $100 billion a year are available to developing countries for mitigation, adaptation and disaster response and recovery," she told the event titled "Midnight Survival Deadline for the Climate" while presiding over it as the current Chair of Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF).
In this connection, the prime minister put forth four-point proposal to save the planet from the adverse impact of the climate change through "robust international partnership".
"Strict implementation of the Paris Agreement is the only way to slow down the current rate of damage caused by climate change," she said in her first proposal.
In the second proposal, she said the governments should not only honour their national contributions under the Paris Agreement, they also need to substantially increase their ambitions. "The idea of climate justice must be established for the sake of climate and the planet," she said.
