The NEC approved Delta Plan 2100 on September 4 to secure the future of water resources and mitigate the likely effects of climate change and natural disasters

The government has decided to undertake 80 projects under the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100, costing nearly Tk2.98 trillion and to be implemented by 2030.

Water Resources Minister Anwar Hossain Manju made the announcement in reply to a question at parliament on Monday, reported BSS.

“In the first phase, the government will implement the 80 projects by identifying six ‘hot spot’,” the minister said while replying to treasury bench member M Faridul Haque Khan, lawmaker from Jamalpur 2 constituency.

The minister also informed the House that out of the 80 projects, 65 had been marked as infrastructure-related, and the rest would be focused on building organizational capacity.
