Bangladesh’s situation is typical of most developing countries, i.e., additional funds to pursue sustainable development are not available even though decision makers may be aware of the correct strategy. The scarcity of resources can become so critical that in many cases a path contrary to that of sustainable development is followed. Often policy makers do not understand the implications of the development path they are pursuing. Capacity building of government agencies therefore is essential in charting a sustainable energy development path.
