Training Manual: NAP and NDC Support Programme

International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) and AMBERO Consulting, Germany in collaboration with GIZ have developed a training manual on “Managing Climate Change in Bangladesh: Foundations for Policymakers” under the NAP NDC Support Programme commissioned by BMZ. A total of 12 training modules have been developed on key aspects of climate change in Bangladesh.

This training manual will help

  • To better understand the climate change problem, both in its cause-and-effect dimensions, i.e. the sources of GHG emissions, the physical manifestations of a changing climate and its implications for various economic sectors/activities and livelihoods. Broadly, this includes impact and vulnerability assessments (IVA) along macro and micro scales – sectors, livelihoods, etc.
  • To improve the capacity to formulate, mainstream and implement national policies, plans and strategies and actions to both help limit the scale of the problem through mitigation of GHG emissions, and to reduce risks and adapt to them
  • To better analyze, build consensus on, and articulate the national interest in UNFCCC negotiations and obligations, as well as the broader array of international climate-related discussions and activities that now engage all countries. There is growing opportunity for mobilization of international climate finance, which requires very specific capacities for developing fundable proposals.

More than 160 officials from MoEFCC, DAE, and other local and national agencies have strengthened their knowledge on climate change and resilience building for vulnerable groups through the trainings. They can apply this knowledge to their work now.
