UNDP provides policy advisory services and capacity development to the Government of Bangladesh in risk mitigation and effective humanitarian response. From a government perspective, disaster management is a fundamental component of the national agenda with the Ministry of Food and Disaster Management playing a central role. UNDP has established itself as the primary partner of the government in disaster management, and works closely with the vibrant and active humanitarian community and civil society to ensure national ownership. In the post-conflict Chittagong Hill Tracts – in the south east of Bangladesh – UNDP is leading an area-based peace building initiative in partnership with local government institutions as laid out in the 1997 Peace Accord.
