It happens today: Crown Princess Mary gets an experience beyond the usual | BILLED-BLADET (billedbladet.dk)


Crown Princess Mary is in Bangladesh on a work trip, which during today offers several interesting program points.

Crown Princess Mary is together with Minister for Development Cooperation Flemming Møller Mortensen and a Danish delegation on a working visit to Bangladesh, which is one of the world's most densely populated countries, and which at the same time hosts an increasing number of refugees.

In the southernmost part of Bangladesh is Cox's Bazar district, where the world's largest refugee settlement is found.

More than 700,000 Rohingya refugees from Myanmar have sought refuge in more than 30 camps, and Crown Princess Mary, who is the patron of the Danish Refugee Council DRC, will today, Tuesday, together with Minister Flemming Møller Mortensen visit the refugee settlement and hear about drC's work in the area.


Great need for recovery

The need for biodiversity restoration is great.

Climate change in particular is a huge challenge in the camps, where both drought and monsoon rains create problems for the safety of the population. Since most of the homes consist of bamboo poles and tarpaulins, the Danish Refugee Council works with local partners to create environmentally friendly and durable bamboo poles. DrC has been present in Bangladesh since 2013 and is headquartered in Cox's Bazar.

Among other things, the DRC is working to establish the slopes in the camps with the help of cement masonry.


Mary looks at climate proofing

In this connection, Crown Princess Mary will, together with the Minister for Development Cooperation, look at a number of DRC's climate protection projects and efforts for nature conservation.

And then there is the focus on refugees in Cox's Bazar district facing a period of flooding, torrential rains and mudslides when the monsoon period begins in May.
