The Climate Bridge Fund is a trust fund established by BRAC, with support from the government of Germany through KfW in November 2019. It is an innovative, direct climate finance mechanism, which supports registered NGOs located in Bangladesh. The funding mechanism will operate in a way where only the income generated from capital investments is primarily used for funding urban adaptation measures and resilience activities in the context of climate-induced migration.

Climate-induced migration in Bangladesh is directed particularly towards urban slums that are already overcrowded and suffer from poor living conditions. Despite efforts to improve livelihoods of those living in slums, financial challenges in upgrading infrastructure and services exist.

The Climate Bridge Fund has been set up to ‘bridge’ the financial gap - from short-term project funding to sustainable provision of services and infrastructure for climate-induced migrants. It will also enhance the sustainable livelihoods of climate migrants and their resilience to climate-related risks that may trigger further climate-induced migration.
