The next leader to speak is Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of Bangladesh, APA reports citing BBC.

She thanks the US for rejoining the Paris climate accords and re-engaging with the world in the climate fight.

Bangladesh is "a climate-vulnerable country" and therefore represents the interests of other small developing nations with similar vulnerability, says Hasina.

She points out they spend millions on climate-resilience and mitigation measures, and calls on the developed world to help lead that fight.
