But due to worst impacts of climate change, we only enjoy summer and winter, likely two seasons in our country. And our most of the rivers are dead!

Those severely attack the lives and livelihoods of the people of Bangladesh, and the people of Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region, and Asian countries as well.
