Climate resilient urban areas for all
Bay of Bengal may take away one tenth of Bangladesh’s territory with its rising water level by 2050. The costs of climate change can amount in 2050 to 2% of the gross domestic product and in 2100 to more than 9%. Holistic strategies are required at national and local levels to address these challenges and encourage effective allocation of limited public investment capital to sectors and regions most at risk. Adaptation of Climate Change into the National and Local Development Planning project, implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Government, aims to contribute to increasing the climate resilience of extremely vulnerable population groups in urban areas of Bangladesh. It supports the systematic consideration of climate change impacts on development and investment planning, as well as improving the access to and use of geospatial information. Thus, the project explicitly aims to ensure that more investment projects consider climate risks. Furthermore, the project helps reduce the proportion of people vulnerable to climate change impacts by strengthening evidence-based decision making in planning and appraisal.
