The minister visited Sweden-funded projects being facilitated by the United Nations Development Programme and United Nations Capital Development Fund in the climate change vulnerable coastal belt of Bangladesh, a press release said today.

"We are delighted to see that women in such remote place are benefitting from drinking water from a plant set up with Swedish support," he said.

"This is a good example of climate change adaption support being used effectively," he said after visiting a water purification plant set up by the Local Government Initiative on Climate Change (LoGIC) project in Sutarkhali in Khulna's Dacope.
