Strengthening Municipal and National Government Capacity to Deliver Pro-poor, Climate Sensitive Urban Development

Strengthening Municipal and National Government Capacity to Deliver Pro-poor, Climate Sensitive Urban Development

How can we support the Bangladesh government to deliver climate conscious pro-poor urban development in its cities?

Rising sea levels are expected to impact 1 in 7 Bangladeshis, presenting a challenge for the government’s urban planning strategy.  To understand the current urban planning ecosystem and its impact on the urban poor and provide recommendations for pro-poor, climate sensitive urban development, Athena identify specific areas demanding improvement in the urban planning process through a process and stakeholder mapping exercise. The initiative also included the development of a detailed set of spatial and non-spatial metrics, alongside  data collection protocols for the same to empower local governments to track inputs, outputs and outcomes emanating out of the identified intervention pathways.
