Least Developed Countries Expert Group stocktaking meeting on

NAPA preparation and implementation

Bangkok, Thailand

Status of NAPA Implementation

  • Bangladesh submitted her NAPA in Nov. 2005 to UNFCCC

  • Consultation Meeting with all the stakeholders (SWG) to implement NAPA

  • A Team was formed to develop project proposal from identified NAPA priority projects

  • Two Project Proposals (PIF) was prepared by Department of Environment/Ministry of Environment and Forests in collaboration with UNDP, Bangladesh and was submitted to GEF for approval.

  • Inception workshop planned in Dhaka, Bangladesh in mid-October 2007.


Project Identification Form (PIF) - 1

  • Project Title: Strengthening adaptive capacities to address climate change threats on sustainable development strategies for coastal communities in Bangladesh

  • GEF IA: UNDP

  • Project Executing Agency: Department of Forest, Ministry for Environment and Forest (MOEF)

  • Project Duration: 4 years

  • GEF Focal Area: Climate Change – Adaptation

  • GEF Operational Program: LDCF

  • Approval Status: Approved by GEF.


Goal, Objectives & Outcomes

  • The Goal of the project is to reduce vulnerability of coastal communities to impacts of climate change, including variability.

  • The Objective of the project is to improve the resilience of coastal populations, settlements, and ecosystems in areas exposed to coastal hazards.


Goal, Objectives & Outcomes(Cont..)

  • The anticipated project Outcomes in support of the objective,

    • Climate risk reduction interventions implemented.

    • Capacity to address emerging hazards and risk reduction at the national and community level enhanced.

    • Existing and proposed national policies revised to increase robustness to climate change risks on coastal communities.


Project Identification Form (PIF) - 2

  • Project Title: Comprehensive Climate Change Adaptation Capacity Building for Sustainable Development in Bangladesh

  • Executing Agency: Department of Environment, Ministry of Environment and Forests.

  • Duration: 2006-2010

  • GEF Focal Area: Climate change

  • GEF Operational Program: SCCF


Status of NAPA Implementation

  • WB Country Director visited DoE last week to discuss, how WB can help Bangladesh to implement Investment projects.

  • Recently Bangladesh has formed a committee to develop a long term Climate Change Policy and Action Plan.

  • DFID is expected to provide substantial amount of fund to implement comprehensive Climate Change Activities in Bangladesh, which will include priority NAPA Implementation Projects.


Mainstreaming Adaptation into National Development Planning

  • Introduction of Climate Change screening criteria into the Project Proposal document; i.e. what will be the impact of Climate Change on the project, in other words, whether the project is climate resilient.

  • Ministry of Environment and Forests has already requested the NAPA SWG to prepare project proposal and look for funding from National or International sources, through their own mechanism

  • Generic Country Framework for Climate Resilient Development developed.


Mainstreaming CC

  • We have identified Focal Point & Alternate Focal Points at relevant Ministries and Organizations, and has organized several 3 day long training programs on Climate Change. More than 100 Focal Points and govt. officials and NGO representatives have been trained.

  • Institutional Road Map for Climate Impact Prediction Modeling
