OUR FOCUS

Democratic Governance

Significant progress

Effective governance is critical to ensuring that Bangladesh can make the most of its human potential. Bangladesh has made significant progress in promoting competent, effective institutions that respect fundamental human rights and the rule of law, but challenges remain. UNDP-supported initiatives, including a National Human Rights Commission, an expansive Village Courts system, a Justice Sector reform network, and National Government Assessment Framework continue to improve the quality and scope of government services. UNDP is a committed, impartial partner to government, civil society, community and academic organizations seeking to improve the transparency, accountability, and efficiency of Bangladeshi institutions.

Our Goals

UNDP supports a Bangladesh where everyone can openly, safely, and peacefully contribute to Bangladesh’s development story. This vision requires capable, inclusive, and rule-based governance institutions. UNDP works closely with the Government of Bangladesh to draft intelligent public policy, improve technical capacity, and introduce best practices that are responsive to the Bangladeshi context. Women, children, underprivileged and minority groups attract special attention and consideration in UNDP’s choice of projects and partnerships. UNDP also maintains an active and respectful relationship with civil society organizations, including local NGOs, academic, community and media institutions, recognizing that a healthy public discourse is essential to good governance.
