NEW DELHI (AP) — Bangladesh says it will present its climate prosperity plan to lessen the effects of climate change on the economy at the forthcoming U.N. climate talks in Glasgow. The plan envisions boosting renewable energy, making agriculture more resistant to climate shocks and finding solutions in nature, such as restoring mangroves to protect coasts from cyclones. The densely populated South Asian nation is particularly vulnerable to flooding, extreme weather and the loss of farmland to rising sea levels. Bangladesh says it will encourage other countries prone to disasters to draft their own plans. A climate official Abul Kalam Azad told the AP that Bangladesh could still make the Ganges River Delta that dominates much of the country prosperous with support from abroad.
