Women’s capacity building in climate change should be ensured
Water resource and climate change specialist, emeritus professor of Brac University Ainun Nishat said the intensity and frequency of natural calamities will increase in Bangladesh in the coming days due to climate change and women and children are the worst sufferers of the change in nature.
“Flowers don’t bloom in time, rainfall has become unpredictable. We can understand the danger by erratic behavior of the nature,” he told a roundtable on Saturday adding climate change adaptation is a must although it is a long term endeavour.
Prothom Alo, in association with Manusher Jonno Foundation, organised the roundtable on the role of rural women in climate change adaptation.
