Bangladesh faces ‘worst flooding in 100 years’ while climate talks in Bonn falter

Category : Power Shift in the News | tags: Independent

Devastating floods in Bangladesh have displaced millions of people and left vast swathes of land inundated, with state officials in the hardest-hit Sylhet district calling it the worst flooding in over one hundred years.

Experts say the disaster hitting Bangladesh and northeastern India, in which at least 59 people have died so far, is a timely reminder of the damage already being wrought by extreme weather events.

...“At a time when vulnerable countries are facing terrifying consequences, what we have here in Bonn is a betrayal of vulnerable communities and countries,” said Mohamed Adow, the director of Power Shift Africa, on Thursday. “It is disgraceful that rich countries are not treating loss and damage and climate finance with the seriousness they deserve.”
