Civil society slams COP24 negotiations

25 December 2018

UNB, Dhaka :
Representatives of civil society organisations on Monday criticised the outcome of the global climate change negotiation (COP24) in Poland's Katwise, calling it frustrating.
They also slammed the proposed "Paris Rulebook" that ignored interests of the Most Vulnerable Countries.
The day's press conference at the Jatiya Press Club was moderated by M Rezaul Karim Chowdhury

of EquityBD. The same organisation's Syed Aminul Hoque presented the keynote paper. Among others, Qumrul Islam Chowdhury of Federation of Environmental Journalist in Banagldesh, Md Shamsuddoha of Centre for Participatory Research and Development, and Badrul Alam of Banglaesh Krishak Federation, spoke in the event.
Aminul said there was hardly any particular text in the proposed Paris Rulebook on financial commitment, technology and capacity building issues for vulnerable countries.
