IUB partners with Sweden for climate action

Sweden and Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) have launched a four-year partnership to strengthen climate action in Bangladesh, said a press release.

Tanweer Hasan, vice chancellor of IUB, and Maria Stridsman, head of cooperation and deputy head of mission of the Embassy of Sweden in Dhaka, yesterday signed the agreement on behalf of the two parties.

The project, “Capacity Strengthening of Multi-actors to Limit Climate Change Impacts and Enhance Resilience”, will be implemented by the International Centre for Climate Change and Development of IUB.

The cooperation also aims to improve collaborations among actors to develop common and coherent approaches to address climate change.

The project is expected to fill the knowledge gaps on climate change issues that exist in local, regional, institutional and national levels, and thereby capacitate multiple actors such as researchers, the government, NGOs, community-based organisations, the private sector, think tanks, schools, etc to take up leadership in climate action.
