Project selection procedure.

Bangladesh Climate Change Trust (BCCT) maintains a forthright process in selecting projects. Prescribed projects by different ministries addressing the six thematic areas of Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan (BCCSAP) are sent to the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF). MoEF forwards the prescribed projects to BCCT for receiving and reviewing. Projects are scrutinized in different stages as by BCCT Team, Technical committee and Trustee board. BCCT receives the prescribed projects and propounds to technical committee with recommendations after reviewing successfully. Technical committee reviews the technical sides and environmental impact assessment (EIA) of the projects. BCCT submits the reviewed projects by technical committee with decent recommendations to Trustee board for final consideration and approval. Trustee board, finally re-evaluates the projects prescribed by technical committee and granted approval. Some cases, if necessary Trustee board suggests the respective project proponent ministries or organizations for bringing revised project proposal following the advisable decisions taken in Trustee board regarding on the respected projects. The approved projects run by BCCT following the Climate Change Trust Fund Policy (15 February 2010).
