The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) presented its support mechanism at a workshop “Private Sector Contribution to Climate Change Adaptation” dedicated to the stakeholders from Bangladesh and Viet Nam. The workshop was organised on 9th February 2021 (for Bangladesh) and on 2nd March 2021 (for Viet Nam) by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan (METI).
Through the discussion with stakeholders from Bangladesh and Viet Nam which are facing similar issues to Japan, the aim of the workshop was to match needs and seeds of technologies and services to contribute to climate change adaptation, as well as introduce the support mechanisms like the CTCN and the GCF for development and implementation of climate change adaptation projects, articulate the next steps, and build a network between stakeholders participated in the workshop for further discussion toward realization of concrete activities.
Bangladesh is ranked among the most vulnerable countries to climate change. About two-thirds of its land area is prone to river and rainwater flooding, and its coastlines are exposed to storm surges and tidal flooding. Please read more about the CTCN work in Bangladesh here.
Viet Nam is also one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. The strength and frequency of extreme weather events, disasters, sea level rise, and land erosion and slide have been increasing. Please read more about the CTCN work in Viet Nam here.
