State-run development agency Palli Karma-Sahayak Foundation (PKSF) has been accredited as the National Implementing Entity (NIE) of Washington-based Adaptation Fund in recognition of its work plan and efficiency in combating the adverse impacts of climate change.

PKSF was accredited by the board meeting of the Adaptation Fund Board on August 3.

A number of government and non-government organisations of Bangladesh applied for this accreditation of high acclaim.

However, the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change found PKSF as the most suitable entity and nominated it for the accreditation, said a release.

On closer examination of its capability and achievements, the Adaptation Fund selected PKSF as its NIE in Bangladesh for the next 5 years.
