Project detail:
Status: Completed
Countries: Asia, Bangladesh

Bangladesh put forth its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in September 2015, setting out ambitious targets for mitigation whilst acknowledging the need for development to achieve a middle income status. CDKN supported these efforts to develop the INDC by ensuring Government of Bangladesh can voice their plans and political ambition for low-carbon and climate-resilient development.

CDKN is now supporting Ministry of Environment and Forests in translating the (I)NDC into concrete plans and interventions, to mainstream climate compatible development (CCD) into planning processes with the aim to ultimately strengthen institutions. Evidence will be provided and institutions (and their capacities) will be strengthened to shape and develop national CCD plans into implementable climate mitigation actions for the three economic sectors: Power, Industry and Transport.


  • The project seeks to equip Government of Bangladesh with clear direction to advance implementation of commitments and national priorities on climate action while enhancing understanding of the barriers and needs (financial, capacity, technology) of Government to take climate action in Bangladesh
  • It will do so by providing a roadmap and sectoral plans for action for implementation of mitigation related commitments in (I)NDC in Power, Industry and Transport sector
  • The project will also enhance understanding on institutional (government) capacity needs for implementation of (I)NDC
