IBFB organized a seminar on "Delta Plan 2100"

Delta Plan 2100 is a long-term strategy to cope with environmental changes and to transform Bangladesh into a prosperous country
IBFB organized a seminar on



In his keynote paper Prof. Dr. Shamsul Alam presented various salient features of the Delta Plan 2100 recently approved by the Govt. He said, the Delta Plan has been developed as a longterm strategy to cope with environmental changes and to transform Bangladesh into a prosperous country. Post independence, the average temperature in Bangladesh increased up to 1 Celsius in the last 47 years, whereas average rainfall decreased from 640 mm in 1971 to 370 mm in 2016. If the country cannot cope with such adverse effects of environmental changes, the economic development cannot be made sustainable. For such reasons, living with nature, economic growth and sustainability, no regret measures etc. were considered as salient features while preparing the Delta Plan. With support from the World Bank and other development partners, around 80 projects will be implemented under the plan, where significant contributions from the Govt. as well as the private will also be there.


Dr. Mozibur Rahman, IBFB Director and former Tariff Commission Chairman said, the country lacks adequate skills and technical capacities to implement the Delta Plan 2100. Therefore, the Govt. should give emphasis on skill and technical capacity development to reduce this gap. On the other hand, Prof. Dr. Md. Salim Uddin FCA gave emphasis on preparing a Master Plan having detailed implementation plan for every single sector/unit and also on harmonization of the plan at the national, regional and international level. While delivering concluding remarks, Prof. Dr. Nazrul Islam said, to make the Delta Plan more effective it should be harmonized with different development plan like 7th five-year plan, SDG plan etc. taken by the Govt.


Among others, IBFB Founding President Mahmudul Islam Chowdhury, Immediate Past President Hafizur Rahman Khan, Vice President M S Siddiqui, Vice President (Finance) Lutfunnisa Saudia Khan etc. were present in the seminar.
