    In my opinion not all countries have equal responsibilities in the field of green reconstruction. But i would be wrong to say that not every country has any responsibility. We know that in big countries like Africa, United Kingdom, Latina America etc.,even if they dont take any big steps to rebuild green for themselves. Because they have been stromg on this issues for a long time. However, a mass media in Africa knows that, covid-19 should not be a reason to renege on global climate commitments. That was one the messages shored by Kevin kariuki,vice President for power,Energy and green growth at the African development Bank, on behalf of bank president Akinwumi adesina at the africa regional resilience dailogue,titled building back better and greener. Sizing transformation opportunities for a Resilient future in Africa. "The on going covid-19 pandemic caught everybofy unaware and has aggravated Africa’s vulnerabilities, neversing 10 to 20 years of hard-earned progress gains. We need to build resilience in the face of this,and future pandemics, " Kariuki said. If a strong country in green reconstruction like Africa can say these things,so what will happen to the place where i live, that is Bangladesh where there is no any step towards green reconstruction? Now that every country should to Building back better and greener in every requires strong partnerships,high leave Champions agree.!!!!

      Thanks hardworking_orange - to avoid confusion Africa and Latin America are continents made up of many countries. Might these countries be able to work together to make changes on their continent?

    As a result,91% of our earth is polluted. Omar Tello grew his own rainforest by just planting seeds .He has inspired other farmers to start .In my opinion, I think this is such a great thing . I live in London,England and on my journey home I see numerous mask on the ground and people throwing rubbish on the floor ; it disgusts me. According to Google, Bangladesh is the most polluted country in the world . We can help countries like Bangladesh by not cutting down trees , picking up litter you find on the ground and doing less transport using a vehicle . Doing a little can change a lot. I want my future to be bright. Don't you want yours to be?
