Bangladesh Capacity Development Action Plan for Sustainable Environmental Governance
Bangladesh is a signatory to a number of Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) including the Rio Conventions (RCs), i.e. United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). However, the country’s capacities at individual, institutional and systemic levels to implement these Conventions are limited. Against this backdrop, Bangladesh undertook the National Capacity Self-Assessment (NCSA) initiative to assess the capacity needs and prepare a capacity development action plan for sustainable environmental governance. The project was implemented by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) with the technical support of The World Conservation Union (IUCN), Bangladesh Country Office and financial support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF)/United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Bangladesh.
