Supporting Bangladesh to advance their NAP process
Status of assistance to Bangladesh for their NAP process:
A Green Climate Fund (GCF) financed project has been launched to support the formulation and advancement of the Bangladesh National Adaptation Plan (NAP) with a focus on long term adaptation investment and enhancing national capacity for integration of climate change adaptation in planning, budgeting and financial tracking processes. The Ministry of Environment and Forests, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Planning and key personnel working on climate change adaptation relevant programming in water resources, agriculture and food security, coastal zones, and urban habitation (the “priority sectors”) will be the beneficiaries of this project.
Technical support was provided from NAP-GSP to leverage finance for NAPs.
A publication entitled NAP in focus: Lessons from Bangladesh was prepared in collaboration with the Government of Bangladesh
With support from Norway, a National NAP roadmap has been produced by a team of national experts in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and UNDP. Bangladesh has subsequently applied for LDCF funding through UNDP support to facilitate the implementation of this road map. The GSP provided a review for this road-map.
Delegates from Bangladesh attended the NAP-GSP Regional Training Workshop for Asian LDCs in February 2014 - in which a NAP timeline schedule was formulated by the Bangladesh country team (view below)
