DFCD Scalable Climate Solutions challenge in Bangladesh

The Dutch Fund for Climate and Development’s (DFCD) Scalable Climate Solutions Challenge is looking for business models and projects that help improve food security, ​fresh​ water and sanitation in Bangladesh.

The coastal zone of Bangladesh is home to significant aquatic as well as terrestrial ecosystems, which the population has found ways of living and using in harmony with nature rather than destroying it.

One project will be provided with a development contribution of up to € 350K from the existing DFCD Origination facility, get a chance to present their project at COP26 in Glasgow and become eligible for larger support from DFCD. Is your organisation interested in this Challenge and do you have or know a project that fits the needs of local communities and ecosystems in Bangladesh? Then it is the perfect opportunity for you and your stakeholders to join.

Here are the speakers for the day:

Aart Mulder, Portfolio Manager Climate, Fund Manager DFCD
Prof Saleemul Huq, Director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development
Selima Ahmad, Member of Parliament of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh
Mohammad Saifullah, Head of Business ACI Agro link Ltd.
