Poverty Reduction


  • Urban Partnerships for Poverty Reduction

    The Urban Partnerships for Poverty Reduction Project (UPPR) works with communities in poor urban settlements across Bangladesh to improve livelihoods and living conditions. Working in partnership with the Government of Bangladesh and UN Habitat, UNDP believes that these communities are best placed to identify their main priorities.

  • National Social Protection Strategy

    At the Dhaka Social Protection Conference in late 2011, the Government of Bangladesh announced the preparation of a National Social Protection Strategy (NSPS).

  • Support to Inclusive and Sustainable Planning

    The objective of SISP is to strengthen policy and technical capacity within key Government agencies in Bangladesh. The project has a definitive focus on inclusive, pro-poor economic policy, and aims to build Government capacity for sustainable environmental planning to secure a balanced and equitable future.

OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

The UNDP Poverty Reduction Cluster supports the process of social inclusion and local economic development through four interlinked approaches: local ownership, capacity development, income and employment generation and social protection. Local problems need local solutions, and the Poverty Reduction Cluster bridges the gap between Government, NGOs, donors, and most importantly local communities to put programs and resources where they are needed most.
