The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has released the award-winning documentary ‘Adapting to a Changing Climate’ in nine languages, including Bangla.

The documentary highlighted the growing recognition of the need for adaptation to climate impacts around the world.

It has now been translated into nine languages, including the six UN languages -- Arabic, Chinese, English French, Russian, and Spanish -- as well as Portuguese, Bengali and Hindi.

This 20-minute documentary introduces viewers to the topic of climate change adaptation by weaving inspiring stories of adaptation action together with interviews with experts.

In June, it won a gold award at the Deauville Green Awards. The documentary was produced by the United Nations Climate Change secretariat on behalf of the UNFCCC's Adaptation Committee.

The Adaptation Committee encourages organisations and individuals to widely disseminate the video documentary.
