Abstract

Climate change is one of the major global challenges and concerns to the world community due to its short and long term impacts on the environmental degradation. In this context, Bangladesh has been facing a great havoc for her existence in this land including health hazards, ecosystems and biodiversity loss etc. In order to address this issue, the Government of Bangladesh passed several environmental legislations including the Bangladesh Environment Conservation Act 1995; the Bangladesh Environment Conservation Rules 1997 and the Environment Courts Act 2000 etc. In the meantime, the Government has also ratified around 45 international treaties in protecting her environment as per the intergovernmental conferences held in the different places in the world including Stockholm, Rio, and Johannesburg etc. But these laws and policies are hardly implemented due to some technical constraints such as the non-coordination, absence of expertise, shortage of manpower, exploitation of natural resources etc. However, this study will examine the legal issues and policies pertaining to climate changes and its impacts in Bangladesh based on the primary and secondary sources consisting of 25 respondents in different criteria such as lecturers, researchers, and common people etc.; at UKM Bangi, Malaysia.
