Bangladesh’s journey towards tackling poverty and climate change

Bangladesh has been well known as both a poor as well as climate vulnerable country for several decades. However the country is now well on the path to graduate out of Least Developed Country status and also towards becoming a climate resilient country. In this lecture Saleemul will share some insights into how this happened and where things are headed.

This lecture is part of the Sussex Development Lecture series: Achieving the SDGs: Synergies and Tensions.
