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.
