On 14th September 2023 the first National Local Government Day of Bangladesh was inaugurated to celebrate, create public awareness, and increase people’s involvement with local government institutions. Around September 17th the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) of Bangladesh organized a three-day development fair for the National Local Government Day.
The LGED is also responsible for implementing the Climate Resilient Infrastructure Mainstreaming Project (CRIMP), co-financed by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and KfW. As first implemented component of CRIMP, the Climate Resilient Local Infrastructure Centre (CReLIC) is being established since 2020, a task implemented by the consortium AMBERO-COMO-TTT.
CReLIC participated at the fair, which was inaugurated by Sheikh Mohammad Mohsin, Chief Engineer of LGED. Throughout the fair, numerous visitors expressed genuine interest in the various guidelines, manuals, and lessons-learned documents presented by CReLIC. The event concluded with a vibrant discussion and cultural program, awarding CReLIC with the 2nd place among all participating projects. Team leader Nazmul Hasan Chowdhury accepted the award on behalf of CReLIC.
