Nobel Peace Prize winning IPCC member, Dr Qazi Ahmed, backs Give Your Vote

Eminent Bangladeshi Economist and member of the Nobel-winning UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) team - Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad will be participating and supporting the Give Your Vote campaign.

Dr. Ahmad, who has been working on development economics and climate in Bangladesh for over 30 years said,

''In the highly iniquitous global order, the developed countries call all the shots. They have been responsible for the devastating climate change, which is now the greatest threat to Humankind and the planet Earth itself, with the poor countries and poor people being the worst sufferers.

They are now dithering, using all tricks to shun their responsibility. In this background, Give Your Vote campaign is a brave and great idea. it invokes the inherent equality of all human beings to take part in global, political, economic and climate change related decisions by developed countries, that affect their lives and livelihoods.
