Dear Sir
Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the world. The country is on the way to achieve the status of developing country but also facing several challenges. Among the challenges, the coping with the risks associated with climate change is very crucial. Acting on Climate Change with sixty percent of its land surface at five meters or less above sea level, Bangladesh is one of the countries most affected by the climate change-related natural disasters. Experts worried that third of Bangladesh's population may be at risk of displacement because of rising the sea levels and coastal erosion, which could lead to a loss of 17 per cent of land surface and 30 per cent of food production by 2050.
To prevent the upcoming natural disaster, that is a threat to the existence of the nation, government along with international community and non-governmental stake holder should work together under a common policy.
