Our approach

This review set out to assess whether the DFID Bangladesh Climate Change Programme was effectively and efficiently responding to the needs of the people of Bangladesh.

The evaluation set out to address a programme of activity that had not yet been completed. Consequently it focused on the demand and need for climate change assistance in Bangladesh, the choices made over the design of the programme and the likely impact and outcomes based on current and past comparative monitoring. It in particular assessed whether value for money was being achieved.
