We have already written about the potential horror scenes when 100 million Bangladeshis storm India borders because of the loss of land due to events caused by the global effects of climate change. A General from Bangladesh laid out this scenario in Washington DC at a conference on Security issues. Now the the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s news website draws our attention at two topics the Bangladeshis are dealing with these days:

Bangladesh looks likely to be the first country to include in its constitution a provision for redressing damage resulting from climate change.

Power-hungry Bangladesh has doubled the number of homes with solar-generated electricity systems to 800,000 over the last year. Demand for the systems is growing as the country curbs new connections to its overburdened power grid and as costs for the solar panels come down, according to a range of non-profit groups now providing them across the country.

Barriers preventing the transfer of clean technologies to help nations like India adopt low-carbon development  must be removed if the world is to successfully address climate change, a new study warns.
