What We Do
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations though sustainable, innovative, and community-based development projects. Since 1972, UNDP and its partners have helped Bangladesh make critical advances in the areas of governance, poverty reduction, climate change and disaster resilience. Communities are made stronger by our partnerships and assistance.
Over the past decade and a half, Bangladesh has made impressive gains across key human development indicators. Though Bangladesh continues to face significant challenges arising from economic inequality, vulnerability to disasters, and transitioning government institutions, UNDP Bangladesh remains committed to helping the Bangladeshi people achieve their full developmental potential.
