Britain Pledges Climate Aid to Bangladesh

Douglas Alexander, the UK's International Development Secretary today announced a new partnership to Bangladesh that will provide £75 million to assist in adaptation efforts to reduce vulnerability to climate change. Given the persistent vulnerability of Bangladesh to climate variability in the present day, it's probably more accurate to state that the funds represent development and natural disaster management assistance. However, as is often the case with the developing world, addressing such current, acute vulnerability is a limiting step in preparing nations for future climate change.
