Staff Reporter :
Civil Society leaders on Thursday emphasized on government preparation for presenting strong historical and evidence based context of climate change effects on Bangladesh in the Conference of Parties (CoP) 24.
Besides, they have suggested the government to assess the loss and damage due to climate change and negotiate strongly with the partners for receiving green finance and immediate release of the fund to mitigate climate change effects as Bangladesh remains as the most vulnerable country in the coming (CoP) 24 to be held on January 2018 in Poland.
The suggestions sprang in a press conference titled 'CoP 23 Outcome: Civil Society View Points' held at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) Sagor-Runi Auditorium in the city.
Executive Director of Bangladesh Center for Advance Study Dr. Atiq Rahaman was the chief guest in the programme, while member of EquityBD Aminul Hoque presented the key note paper and Forum on Environmental Journalist member Quamrul Islam Chowdhury, member of Climate Journalist Forum Md. Motahar Hossen, Chief Moderator of EquityBD Rezaul Karim Chowdhury, among others, spoke in the programme.
Aminul Hoque in his key note presentation said that CoP 23 has made one successful progress, especially to design the format and its principle of participation in the upcoming Facilitative Dialogue 2018 that created scope for Bangladesh to present the story and build empathy and trust.
"So our government should take this opportunities and present strong evidence based on historical and current context to draw global attention and favor support in financing
 and technologies to survive through adaptation and resilient building as most vulnerable country," he said.
"In CoP 23, we had a good progress on agriculture and gender equality, but less progress in global issues like temperature increment. We need to make planned presentation before the donors to manage finance and release it," said Dr. Atiq Rahaman .
"In CoP 23, our two organisations have been identified namely PKSF and IDCOL to work against climate change in Bangladesh, which is a good news but they should strengthen the capacity and infrastructure to fight against climate change effects in our country," Dr. Atiq Rahaman said.  
"Bangladesh has been participating in CoPs with less preparation officially. This has been observed since last couple of years where it is difficult to assess country position and also difficult for CSOs to paly appropriate pro-government role in CoP. So we urge the government to look on this issue and prepare for next CoP-24,"said Rezaul Karim Cho mwdhury.
"As our negotiators were less prepared in CoP 23, in fact it was a failure to reach with an appropriate framework and financing issues to the donors which is long standing issue for MVCs. However, we have to prepare our case based presentation for access to finance and release it," said Quamrul Islam Chowdhury.
