Dhaka, July 10 (IBNS):  Former United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon  on Wednesday praised Bangladesh and said the country has been the best teacher in the region of climate change adaptation.

Ban is currently visiting Dhaka.

He made the remark during the inaugural ceremony of a two-day international conference on climate change adaptation in the Bangladesh capital.

"We are here to learn from Bangladesh's experiences and vision, when it comes to adaptation, our best teachers are opened doors who are on the front lines of climate change," Moon was quoted as saying by The Daily Star.

"If sea levels were to rise by just one metre, 17% of the country (Bangladesh) would be under water by 2050, he said.

"According to the IPCC, Dhaka itself could be engulfed by even or slight rise in sea level," he awas quoted as saying by the newspaper.
