DHAKA, March 9, 2024 (BSS) - Environment Forest and Climate Change Minister Saber Hossain Chowdhury today said all concerned must come forward to combating climate change as it is a global challenge.

He also highlighted the pivotal role of artists in raising public awareness about climate change impacts.

Saber underscored the need for inspiring individuals to consider the impacts of climate change and take proper action.

The environment minister made the remarks while talking to reporters after joining as the chief guest the closing ceremony of "Chalman", a solo exhibition on climate change and women, held at Alok's Neighborhood Art Space Shala Gallery in the capital.

Responding to a question, he reaffirmed the government's commitment to combatting climate change in collaboration with the international community. 

He said steps have been taken for extensive afforestation, scaling up renewable energy production, and implementing adaptation measures for communities vulnerable to climate impacts.

The minister urged all segments of society to be proactive in addressing the adverse impacts of climate change.

The event was attended by Ruxmini Reqvana Q Chowdhury, founder and director of Alokir The Neighborhood Art Space; renowned Bangla Academy awardee Noorjahan Bose, as well as artists, art critics, and cultural figures.

At the exhibition, US expatriate artist Monica Jahan Bose showcased the effects of climate change through a multi-dimensional presentation, including a three-channel video, saree installation art, and a performance involving women from the climate-vulnerable Katakhali village in Patuakhali. 

These participants shared firsthand accounts of climate impacts on coastal regions.
