Locals in the district gathered under banner of Sachetan Nagarik Committee (Sanac) and formed a human chain on Saturday demanding visible progress and transparency in climate finance to implement the Paris Agreement.
Sanac arranged the programme with the assistance of Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) at the Post Office intersection in the district town.
Sanac President Principal Syedul Alam, Corruption Prevention Committee President Prof Abdul Matin, Sujon President Aminur Rahman Tuku among other spoke at the programme.

In the Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015, all countries agreed to step up efforts to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial temperatures and boost climate action financing.
