This is the first medium term development plan to support the implementation of Vision 2021. It presents the strategies, policies and institutions that allow Bangladesh to accelerate growth and reduce poverty. Development of the energy sector has been prioritized because energy is a major constraint for continued development of the nation. The goals for the energy sector include increasing energy efficiency by 10%, improving railways and waterways as energy efficient multi-modal transport system to reduce carbon emission, optimizing domestic production of primary energy resources including renewable energies. The goals for the environmental sector that are related to LEDS include increasing productive forest coverage by 2 percentage points, restoring and protecting urban wetlands in line with the Wetland Conservation Act, protecting at least 10% of the wetland in peak dry season as aquatic sanctuary, establishing and protecting 500 meter wide permanent green belt along the coast, and completing land zoning for sustainable land/water use. The priorities for the energy sector include reducing system losses and improving energy use efficiency. However, other priorities are focused on developing the oil and gas industry.
