Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Saber Hossain Chowdhury said that the Nordic countries including Sweden, Norway and Denmark have assured to strengthen their cooperation in environmental protection, combating climate change and sustainable development. The Minister of Environment said these things to the journalists after a meeting with the ambassadors of Sweden, Norway and Denmark – Alexandra Berg von Lind, Espen Richter-Svendsen and Christian Brix Moller, respectively, at the Environment Minister’s office at the Bangladesh Secretariat on Monday.

At that time, Environment Minister Saber Hossain Chowdhury said, ‘Technology transfer for climate adaptation and mitigation and the implementation of various plans of Bangladesh accepted under the Paris Agreement have been called for to increase cooperation.’

The environment minister called for working together to conserve Bangladesh’s rich biodiversity and tackle challenges like forest loss. He also called for transfer of expertise and technology in air, water and soil pollution control and waste management solutions.

The Nordic ambassadors reiterated their commitment to strengthen support and cooperation in the implementation of Bangladesh’s environmental goals and expressed interest in exploring new avenues of cooperation. They appreciated Bangladesh’s leadership in addressing climate change and efforts to advance sustainable development. They invited the Environment Minister to Nordic Day next month.

The meeting ended with both sides pledging to address environmental challenges and build a more sustainable future for Bangladesh and the world. Later, a delegation led by Sudhir Muralidharan, Country Director of the United Nations Project Services Office, met the Environment Minister and discussed the ongoing UN projects in Bangladesh and how they can work with the Ministry.
