Bangladesh: Climate change strategy and action plan 2009

The present Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan (BCCSAP 2009) is a revised version of the BCCSAP 2008 and reflects the changed development priorities of the new Government.

The BCCSAP 2009 is presented in two parts. The first part provides the background issues based on physical and climactic contexts, core socio-economic realities and policies in the country and the consequent rationale for a strategy on climate change based on the vision for future development of the country. The thrust of the strategy is on sustainable development, poverty eradication and increased well-being of all vulnerable groups in society with special emphasis on gender sensitivity. The second part elaborates a set of programmes based upon six pillars or broad areas of intervention (not necessarily mutually exclusive) which have been identified in the first part.
