Project Description
The development objective of the FIP Investment Plan Preparation Project for Bangladesh is to support the preparation of the Bangladesh Forest Investment Plan that meets the criteria of the Forest Investment Program. The proposed financing instrument is a 250,000 dollars grant from the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) through the Forest Investment Program and will be channeled using the procedures for a small (less than $5 million) recipient-executed trust fund (RETF). The bulk of the project activities are expected to be completed within one year (the Investment Plan is expected to be submitted to the June 2017 FIP Committee meeting) but the grant is for two years to allow for completion of residual commitments.
