International climate experts and diplomats stationed in Dhaka on Sunday laid emphasis on having a legally binding agreement and sought concrete steps to focus on people's needs during COP 21 negotiation in Paris.
They also talked about strict internal law to reduce GHGs emissions, adequate investment on technology development, financing through both private and public sector apart from increasing use of renewable energy.
The experts also said the Paris agreement should include establishment of an international climate court to ensure punishment if any party does not abide by the decision or commitment.
The issues came up for discussion at a workshop titled 'People's Perception on Climate Change Impacts in Bangladesh: Expectations from Paris Climate Negotiation' held at the residence of France Ambassador in the city.
Visiting French Ambassador at-Large for climate negotiations to Asia Philippe Zeller delivered a speech on COP 21: Challenges and Perspectives' at the workshop moderated by PKSF Chairman Prof Dr Qazi Kholiquzzaman.
Speaking at the function, Philippe Zeller said it will be one of the six challenges to have a legally binding agreement with some clear written long term goals and every people will have to give proper plan to that end.
He said green fund is not the only solutions rather it is one of the solutions. "Financial question is also a challenge. It is also a question of private financing not only public financing."
The climate envoy said it will have to make clear that the climate disruptions are well addressed.      ?UNB
