Publication Overview/Description

The largest dynamic delta on earth and habitat of more than 160 million people, Bangladesh faces numerous climate change impacts, including natural disasters, water and environmental challenges, demographic and socio-economic vulnerabilities, and transboundary resource management issues. The government of Bangladesh has formulated the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 (BDP 2100) to effectively address the above issues and ensure sustainable and climate-resilient development, primarily in the delta regions but extending to all regions of the country. The BDP 2100 provides a draft outline of the intended M&E framework for the selected investment plan. This study presents the findings of a review performed for the suggested M&E framework of the BDP 2100 with considerations for climate adaptation and resilience. It was prepared in 2021 and revised in 2023. The current indicators also do not effectively measure changes in economic, social, or environmental conditions within the BDP 2100 area, which is the high-level goal of the BDP 2100. The review proposes adding indicators to measure economic, social, and environmental change, recommends using relevant SDG indicators, including some for SGD 13, and takes urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

The review report is prepared to help GED prepare a guideline for developing the M&E framework and an M&E implementation strategy, as well as being a useful reference for preparing training material on the developed guideline. In addition to GED, the report’s primary audience, other audience include the executing agencies for the BDP 2100 component projects like the Ministry of Water Resources, BWDB, the Department of Public Health Engineering, the Local Government Engineering Department, and the Department of Agricultural Extension since these agencies are responsible for guiding BDP 2100 component projects involving more than one ministry.
