Oral Answers to Questions — International Development

House of Commons debates, 2 December 2009, 11:30 am

     Julie Morgan (Cardiff North, Labour)

What discussions he has had with the government of Bangladesh on aid to tackle the environmental effects on that country of global warming.

        Gareth Thomas (Minister of State, Department for International Development; Harrow  West, Labour)

The UK works closely with the Government of Bangladesh on climate change issues. We are, for example, playing a role in advising and assisting the Bangladesh delegation in its preparations for the Copenhagen meeting next month

     Julie Morgan (Cardiff North, Labour)

I thank the Minister for that reply. Earlier in the year, I visited Bangladesh with the Nationwide Association for Integrated Development-NAID-which is a small charity working between Wales and Bangladesh. I saw at first hand the effects of the flooding, the droughts and the cyclones; the poorest people in the country were being affected. What more can he do to help the people of Bangladesh, especially given that one fifth of the country could disappear if the sea level rises by 1 metre?

        Gareth Thomas (Minister of State, Department for International Development; Harrow  West, Labour)

My hon. Friend is right to highlight the particular challenges relating to climate change in Bangladesh; more than 30 million people in that country could be affected by rises in sea level. That is one reason why my right hon. Friends the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for International Development are continuing to press for further climate finance to be made available to help developing countries such as Bangladesh
