As part of an international project led by Institute of Development Studies to understand change processes required for delivery of climate resilient and low carbon development this case study illustrates how a significant change process of a transnational problem depends on the interplay of actors, their ideas and power relations in a particular political circumstance influenced by international climate governance, initiatives, and actors. This shows the strength and weakness of Bangladesh‟s planning process especially in understanding whether existing power relations, interests and ideology of different actors can explain why some ideas win and some do not. The study findings are not only beneficial for Bangladeshi policy makers, researchers and public but also other climate vulnerable countries pursuing similar planning process.
