Press Release

Accessing global climate finance at enhanced scale for Bangladesh
There are important roles for stake-holders outside government such as media, NGOs, and CBOs, and the private sector for ensuring climate finance
Moving ahead with the Agenda and Priority of Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030
Bangladesh is one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. Global climate change brings additional threats to people and is undermining our development goals. The government of Bangladesh has made some progress in disaster risk management and preparedness. The country has formulated National Plan for Disaster Management in the light of HFA1 (UNISDR, 2005). Bangladesh has Disaster Management Act, 2012 and Standing Order on Disaster (SOD) to address both natural and man-made disasters. NGOs, research institutes, development agencies and civil society organizations are working actively with the government and vulnerable community to address disasters. There is still weakness in implementation, which is very often constrained by lack of resources, capacity among the actors and stakeholders, poor governance and lack of coordination.
