President Abdul Hamid on Wednesday called for comprehensive global steps to combat the adverse effects of global warming on food security.
“We must turn our words into action. Climate change knows no boundary,” he said while addressing virtually the International Conference on Climate Change and Food Security in South Asia at the senate building of Dhaka University.
The porgramme was organised by the International Committee of CCFS.
Saying ‘the world is more united than ever before in addressing the threats of climate change considering the vulnerabilities and the worst effect,’ the president said none can remain idle until this misfortune actually unfolds.
“The time of action cannot be delayed,” he emphasised.
Consolatory commitments, showy speeches, attractive slogans and presentation of substantial papers are not enough to mitigate the problem, he also said.
