Climate Finance Governance in Bangladesh: Synergies in the Financial Landscape

There are diverse intermediaries, instruments and planning systems in
Bangladesh’s financial landscape. Although they all play a role in mobilising
and channelling resources to climate-related investments, disbursement is
fragmented. Between 2009 and 2013, Bangladesh needed US$5 billion of
investment in climate-related initiatives, but only leveraged US$1 billion. To
minimise this deficit and maximise opportunities, it needs to establish local
financial intermediaries to complement existing intermediaries, use
innovative economic and financial instruments and use financial planning
systems to ensure better synergy across the financial landscape.
