"Communities within Bangladesh have been working with nature for many years to adapt to climatic impacts and there is a rich body of knowledge on how to implement Nature-based Solutions."
ICCCAD has received a short-term small-grant on “Understanding the economic recovery potential of nature-based solutions (NbS) in Bangladesh”
International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) at the Independent University, Bangladesh and Instituto de Montaña (NBSI Peru) are jointly working with Nature-based Solutions Initiative (NBSI) at the University of Oxford on the ‘Oxford Martin School Rapid Response Grant’ on “Building back better with nature: clarifying the economic recovery potential of nature-based solutions in the Global South”. The goal of the project is to enhance understanding of the short- and long-term economic recovery potential of investments in nature and have this knowledge inform the design of economic, climate, and development policy for the Global South. ICCCAD will contribute to explore the economic recovery potential (ERP) of NbS in Bangladesh. The work of ICCCAD would include gathering evidence, communicate with ‘NbS Bangladesh Network’ for case studies and data collection, and policy advocacy with potential stakeholders – to investigate the ERP of NbS in Bangladesh. The project timeline for ICCCAD is 7 months (June 2021 – December 2021).
