UK to provide £120m to support climate action in Bangladesh


DHAKA, Nov 10, 2021 (BSS) –


The UK will provide £120 million to Bangladesh for scaling up locally-led adaptation, expanding renewable energy, tackling pollution and waste and developing and empowering next generation of climate leaders.

On 9th November, COP President Alok Sharma announced how £165 million of UK funding will tackle climate change, including by addressing the gender inequalities that make women and girls more vulnerable to climate change, and by empowering women and girls to be leaders in climate action, a UK High Commission press release said here today.

One of these new programmes is £120m for Bangladesh, from 2021 to 2027, it added.

This programme will help deliver a more climate resilience, less carbon intensive and cleaner Bangladesh.

It will help communities cope with a variety of climate impacts through nature-based solutions, increase share of renewable energy in the country’s energy mix, reduce pollution and the generation of hazardous waste from key industrial and municipal sources and deliver greater investment, evidence, and leadership for climate action.

“Gender and climate are profoundly intertwined. And we see it in terms of tackling climate change, where we know our efforts are more effective when women and girls are at their heart,” Sharma said from COP26 in Glasgow.

Through its COP26 Presidency, the UK has been urging countries to put gender equality at the heart of climate action, and on Gender Day convened ministers and other actors to discuss new action to tackle gender and climate change.

The programme will also strengthen the UK-Bangladesh climate partnership by linking up centres of excellence on all aspects of climate change, and sharing expertise, and technology as well as finance, to tackle common challenges, said the release.
