In envisaging a Bangladesh that is free, secure and prosperous, partnerships are critical to promoting development that is responsive and sustainable. Partnerships with local, regional and national actors are at the center of the UNDP’s efforts, especially when supporting Bangladesh in reaching targets set by the Sustainable Development Goals. Over the past several years, UNDP has made significant progress in strengthening partnerships to unlock and expand Bangladesh’s human development potential. We believe that the impact of our work lies in the synergy we create between the Government of Bangladesh, bilateral agencies, the private sector and civil society, but most importantly with the local communities we support.

Partnerships have allowed UNDP Bangladesh to achieve more with less. In building our teams, we have been selective rather than exhaustive, choosing the best partners for a given initiative. Strategic partnerships and alliances have enabled us to gain a competitive advantage through access to new ideas, technologies, know-how and resources.
