The proposed project in Bangladesh is part of a multi-country “Global Clean Cooking Program” planned for support by the World Bank (WB) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)1 with a goal to support development of an affordable and sustainable market for clean cooking initiatives.
According to website of Green Climate Fund, the Bangladesh Clean Cooking Program is aimed at supporting a sustainable market for adoption of improved cookstoves (ICS) that will contribute to improved well-being of people living in rural Bangladesh by reducing Household Air Pollution (HAP) and contribute to reduced Greenhouse gas emissions. The project has the following two components:
Component 1: It will leverage private-sector finance through purchases made by end users equivalent to the total size of the Project. The Project will finance market development activities by the purchase orders intended to enable them to rapidly increase market penetration.
Component 2: It will provide technical assistance to enhance supplier capacity on the one hand and increase the demand for ICS among end users on the other hand. Through these activities, this component will help create the necessary conditions for market growth to continue beyond the duration of the project.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at email@example.com.
