A Strategy to Engage the Private Sector in Climate Change Adaptation in Bangladesh | Zunia

This report highlights that the involvement of the private sector is critical for Bangladesh to prepare for both the challenges and opportunities of climate change. While it underlines the benefit and importance of private sector engagement in the battle against climate change, it also notes that corporate climate change is perceived by the private sector as irrelevant or at best an extension of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and proposes measures to change this perception. Three key areas need to be addressed: • overcoming information gaps - more effective communication of climate change issues and opportunities to key decision makers in Bangladeshi corporates • regional and global success stories - be more aware of successful and commercially viable investments by others in the region • changing the economics of climate change investments - those companies that adapt to climate change will gain.
