In Quest of a Sustainable Low Carbon Bangladesh

In quest of a sustainable low carbon Bangladesh

The adoption of United Nations General Assembly Resolution “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, the adoption of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on “Financing for Development”; the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Adoption of the Paris Agreement by the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are indicating that Global Development Paradigm has started a transformational journey involving all the countries of the world including Bangladesh towards Sustainable Climate Resilient Low-Carbon Pathway. The Paris Agreement urges all nations to undertake progressively ambitious efforts towards a low carbon future through “Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)”. The Article 2 of the Paris Agreement calls for a paradigm shift of the economic development away from its dependency on fossil fuels and energy intensive systems both at global and national level. A Sustainable Climate Resilient Low-Carbon Development Pathway is anticipated to guide the policy regime for the gradual transformation of the existing carbon dependent social-economic development paradigm 'til 2030.
