Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad

Eminent Bangladeshi Economist and member of the Nobel-winning UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) team

''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.
