In this podcast series, which features episodes in English and French, we want to explore the strategies that different countries are using to adapt to an increasingly volatile climate. In each episode – up until the run-up to the first-ever Climate Adaptation Summit in 2021 – one of our experts will talk to a guest about their projects and ideas to maximise the potential of climate adaptation.
In our first episode, Hanne Knaepen, who is coordinating ECDPM’s climate work, talks to Professor Saleemul Huq, Director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development in Bangladesh, and a leading global expert on climate change and sustainable development, particularly from the perspective of developing countries.
The two discuss South-South learning to understand what vulnerable African countries can learn from Bangladesh from a policy, financing and practical point of view.
