This paper was prepared as the background paper for the dialogue on United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009 in Copenhagen: Issues and Concerns for Bangladesh, organised by the CPD on 18 November 2009, in Dhaka. Climate change is one of the greatest environmental, social and economic threats that the planet faces at the moment. LDCs such as Bangladesh are particularly vulnerable to the impact of climate change. The severity and extent of the impacts of climate change could be lessened through huge investments in the areas of adaptation and mitigation. In view of this, this paper puts forward some of the evidences and scientific findings as regards the impact of climate change in various economic sectors of Bangladesh. It identifies some important issues and priorities to be brought forward during the Copenhagen Conference and beyond. The paper highlights some of the major debates among countries surrounding the Conference.
