Climate finance governance in Bangladesh: synergies in the financial landscape
There are diverse intermediaries, instruments and planning systems in Bangladesh’s financial landscape. Although they all play a role in mobilising and channelling resources to climate-related investments, disbursement is fragmented. Between 2009 and 2013, Bangladesh needed US$5 billion of investment in climate-related initiatives, but only leveraged US$1 billion. To minimise this deficit and maximise opportunities, it needs to establish local financial intermediaries to complement existing intermediaries, use
innovative economic and financial instruments and use financial planning systems to ensure better synergy across the financial landscape.
An international network of government planners is sharing strategies on how to mainstream climate change into development planning.
