Bangladesh Climate Change Trust Fund (BCCTF)
The Bangladesh Climate Change Trust Fund (BCCTF) was established as the first-ever national climate fund of a Least Developed Country (LDC). It became operational in 2010 and is headquartered in Dhaka. An independent Trustee Board, chaired by the Minister of Environment and Forests (MoEF) heads the governance and management of the BCCTF.
