“Climate change is leading to the violation of many of the rights of the child in Bangladesh. Here’s my list of violations,” says Rezwan:
Children are not getting an education because their schools are being destroyed and closed.
The rain and floods are more severe, unpredictable, come more often and last longer. It’s hard for people to sow crops and harvest them.
Despite Bangladesh being responsible for less than a thousandth of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, it is one of the countries that is affected the worst by global warming. Researchers on the UN Climate Panel estimate that almost a fifth of Bangladesh will completely disappear under water by 2050, and that 20 million of the country’s inhabitants will become climate refugees.
