In particular, the unbridled carbon emissions and excessive use of fossil fuels in the G20 countries are largely responsible for this situation. However, marginalized countries like Bangladesh are most affected by this disaster. Due to which more than one crore and ninety lakh children of Bangladesh are most at risk. One-fourth of these children are under five years of age. So we have to take action now.
