Audit of USAID/Bangladesh’s Integrated Protected Area Co-Management Program.

Country: Bangladesh
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes

Bangladesh sits in the largest delta in the world, and nearly all of its land is less than 10 meters above sea level. This geographical feature and the dense population make Bangladesh highly vulnerable to global climate change. Moreover, the country has lost over 50 percent of its forests in the last 30 years, and the remaining forests, even in protected areas such as sanctuaries and national parks, are critically threatened.

To address these environmental issues, USAID/Bangladesh initiated implementation of the $12.8 million Integrated Protected Area Co-Management Project in June 2008. This project was designed to promote and institutionalize an integrated co-management system for sustainable natural resources management and biodiversity conservation in protected areas.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Bangladesh’s Integrated Protected Areas Co-Management Program is increasing responsible, equitable economic growth and good environmental governance.
