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. The MDG monitoring and evaluation component of SISP is a continuation of the previous evaluation program in Bangladesh, and will accelerate its progress towards the MDGs up to and beyond 2015.

What have we accomplished so far?

The SISP project is in the early stages, having secured buy-in from Government agencies and development partners – including key budget commitments. SISP is now moving into the implementation stage with strong support at the national and international level.
