Both mitigation and adaptation require substantial investment. Since most of the climate vulnerable countries are from the developing part of the world, aid in any form helps them take action towards addressing the impact of climate change. This study investigated the largest seven donors of Bangladesh to analyse the flow of official development assistance (ODA) and the portion dedicated to climate change and related activities. A concurrent mixed method of inquiry was applied. Secondary quantitative data were collected from donors, organisations and the Government of Bangladesh, and a set of local experts was interviewed. This study has found that Bangladesh has invested about US$10 billion during the last 35 years in disaster-related risk and management, while the total aid amounts to around US$60 billion. Aid dedicated to climate change is very minimal compared to the total aid.
