The chief guest of the program was Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Sabar Hussain Chaudhary. She said, “Gender equality is a fundamental prerequisite for building climate resilience and achieving sustainable development. Our policies and strategies, such as the 'Mujib Climate Prosperity Plan', the 'National Adaptation Plan', and the 'National Biodiversity Strategy and Actions 'Plan', reflect our determination to confront the climate crisis head on.”

“When it comes to the budget, we see a lack of statistical and disaggregated data. First of all we have to fill this gap. This is the first budget of the new government and this year's budget will set the direction for the coming years. Let us be selective and strategic in terms of the areas we need to work on. Let us put in place the infrastructure to take this forward in the coming financial years,” he added.

Participating in the program as a special guest, Farhina Ahmed, Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change said, “There is a need to make the budget participatory.
