Politics of Climate Change

Political debates still continue to overshadow much of the global climate change issue and we still have a long way to focus on how to reduce the vulnerabilities of the affected population. This is the same in South Asia where governments have still failed to reach a consensus on many contentious issues. In September, senior government officials from South Asia met during what was supposed to be a significant regional conference in Kathmandu hosted by the Nepali government with the support of the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, DFID and Embassy of Denmark. Panos Radio South Asia spoke to Jarullah Mansoori from Afghanistan's National Environmental Protection Agency, Bangladeshi Parliamentarian Saber Hossain Chowdhury, Maldivian Minister for Housing, Transport and Environment Mohamed Aslam, and Nepali Parliamentarian Sunil Babu Pant. We try to understand their political perspectives on climate change agenda and asked them how prepared their countries were for the much talked about conference in Copenhagen in December.
