India and Bangladesh have signed an agreement to address climate-related loss and damage in the Sundarbans, a UNESCO World Heritage Site shared between the two countries.

This consensus calls for a joint stakeholder initiative to raise awareness of the Sundarbans’ climate challenges on the global stage.

Despite contributing minimally to carbon emissions, the Sundarbans face significant climate impacts, including cyclones, sea-level rise, and forced migration.

Sundarbans is a mangrove area in the delta formed by the confluence of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna Rivers in the Bay of Bengal.

  • Sundarban in India is its largest mangrove ecosystem.
  • Sundarban Reserve Forest of Bangladesh is the largest mangrove forest in the world.
  • It contains Sundarbans Tiger Reserve, Sundarban Wetland, Sundarbans National Park and Biosphere Reserve.
  • It is the only mangrove forest in the world inhabited by tigers
