The Dhaka Tribune is a national daily newspaper published in Dhaka, Bangladesh; each month one of the issues is dedicated to climate change – the monthly Climate Tribune, published by the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD). The January 2021 Climate Tribune was dedicated to Nature-based Solutions, with articles encouraged and collated by NbS Bangladesh and written by a range of early career researchers, practitioners and experts, including people who are already actively taking part in the NbS Bangladesh Network. The Tribune comprises a diverse set of nine articles, reflecting many aspects of NbS, linking to different approaches and sectors including locally led adaptation, capacity building, urban development, disaster risk reduction and finance:
