A Situation Analysis of Climate Change Adaptation Initiatives in Bangladesh
The study reviews the existing policy and institutional framework, funding mechanisms, and major institutional actors working in the field of climate change adaptation in Bangladesh in order to provide a better understanding of their current priorities as well as the critical areas that are not being addressed. The study also looks into the gender dimensions of climate change adaptation projects, as well as the overall policy framework for gender and climate change. All these issues have been reviewed and analyzed primarily from the standpoint of good governance, focusing on the issues of accountability, responsibility, transparency and participation in policy making and planning, program implementation, institutional framework, and financing mechanisms for climate change adaptation in Bangladesh from local to the national level.
