Progress and Impact

"Climate vulnerable countries will face serious consequences of climate change impacts without adequate allocation of resources for implementation of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) as well as NDCs."

Munjurul Khan, CDKN Senior Strategic Advisor, Bangladesh

CDKN supported the Government of Bangladesh in developing its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) that was submitted to the UNFCCC. This work provided policy-makers with information on existing mitigation efforts, and on potential solutions for avoiding emissions. It has also enabled Bangladesh to understand how a Least Developed Country can contribute not only to adapting to the impacts of climate change: it can also play a role in reducing the greenhouse gases that lead to climate change.

CDKN is pleased to be part of a vibrant network on climate compatible development in Bangladesh that goes beyond government ministries, and includes academia, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and research organisations, which are working on programme design as well as implementation stage. We have provided direct funding support to some non-governmental actors, which helps with ‘bottom-up’ as well as ‘top-down’ efforts at climate compatible development.

CDKN’s technical assistance to the Government has enabled Bangladesh to take regional and global leadership on the emerging concept of climate-related loss and damage. Local researchers and experts have provided government and negotiators with better understanding on this technically complex issue and its national relevance.
