The global energy crisis and the impact of climate change require a shift towards renewable and sustainable energy sources. Bangladesh is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and needs to mitigate its effect by reducing fossil fuel reliance and developing renewable energy sources.
Despite contributing less than 1% of global carbon emissions, Bangladesh is one of the most climate-vulnerable countries, and without changes, it would see annual economic costs equivalent to 2% of its GDP by 2050, widening to 9.4% by 2100.
