KL to assist the formulation of a new Local Government Support Programme in Bangladesh

KL has been assigned by the Swiss Development Cooperation in Dhaka to lead the formulation of a new joint local government support programme in Bangladesh, funded by the Government of Bangladesh, UNDP, SDC and Danida.

The new programme will provide support to reform efforts at the Upazila (sub-district) and Union Parishad (rural local government) level, which are the lowest tiers of subnational government in Bangladesh. The programme formulation takes place from June - September 2016 with the aim to launch the new programme in 2017. It will be hosted by the Local Government Division under the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives and UNDP in Dhaka will coordinate the programme implementation.

For further information, please contact Jens Peter Christensen (jpc@kl.dk), Senior Advisor at KL. Mr Christensen has been assigned as team leader for the programme formulation.
