Bangladesh often considered as one of the country’s most vulnerable to climate variability and change. To address adverse effects of climate change, adaptation is included in the key national development plans and the 8th Five Year Plan (2021-2025). The adaptation program prioritized in the National Adaptation Program of Action (NAPA), the Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan (BCCSAP) and the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) is now under implementation. Bangladesh is pioneer in bringing internal attention on supporting climate change adaptation (CCA), setting-up climate change trust funds and community-based adaptation approaches. In many regards, Bangladesh has also been a pioneer in CCA and provides an interesting model for sharing lessons learned with other LDCs. However, challenge remains in Bangladesh, with regard to institutional coordination and integration of CCA into program, budgets and performance frameworks, especially across various sectors. Several prioritized CCA options are still to be financed and implemented. Strategy for risk informed decision-making process on mid- and long-term CCA investment are yet to be fully in place.
The objective of this readiness project is to formulate the Bangladesh National Adaptation Plan (NAP) with a focus on medium- and long-term adaptation investment and enhancing national capacity for integration of climate change adaptation in planning, budgeting and finance tracking processes.
Prioritized NAP components include (i) establishing an inter-institutional NAP coordination mechanism, (ii) enhancing climate data and use those in investment planning, (iii) carrying out sectoral, regional and ecosystem-level vulnerability assessments and drafting a NAP based on consultations with all relevant stakeholders, (iv) developing sectoral action plans (v) undertaking appraisals and costing of adaptation interventions and (vi) establishing a monitoring framework for the NAP implementation process.
