Intervention of UNDP
UNDP also facilitated the process of linking investor and building trust in first 2 projects.
Less Attractive to Investors: Country Risk & Lack of Trust
Delayed project implementation process: Different from Conventional Project Approval Method

End of 1st Part
The government has set up a two tier Designated National Authority (DNA)
The first tier, located at the Ministry of Environment and Forest, is the secretariat or operational body of the DNA- performs all CDM related activities including giving preliminary approval of CDM projects through the CDM Committee.
The second tier, known as the CDM Board- gives the final endorsement of the approved projects. The Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister is head the CDM Board. Since the Principal Secretary has jurisdiction over all secretaries of different ministries of the government, it is expected inter-ministerial coordination will be easily achieved.
Apart from establishment of DNA, the government has also established national procedures for evaluation and approval of CDM projects and developed interim sustainable development criteria for the evaluation of CDM projects.
The Government plans for a study on National Strategy for the Development of CDM. The study will assess the issues and opportunities presented by potential international markets for GHG (greenhouse gases) offset through the CDM, and to evaluate processes and methodologies to facilitate implementation of CDM in Bangladesh.
