The progressive journey of Bangladesh is at the centre of global attention today. Bangladesh made major breakthroughs in economic growth, and headways in development indicators amidst numerous challenges. The nation, as reflected in government’s core policy documents, has set now for herself a target of establishing a corruption-free inclusive government.
Platforms for Dialogue (P4D) is a European Union funded project that, in partnership with the Cabinet Division, builds rights awareness, promotes democratic ownership of citizens in policy and practices, and supports government officials to be abler in terms of accountability and responsiveness. Implemented through the British Council, the three-year project of 13 Million Euro is a unique initiative that addresses both the demand and the supply ends of reforms.
The project is propelled by a number of lively Civil Society Organisations operating at grassroots level. P4D’s key intervention is capacity building of local civil society organisations and representatives of local government bodies. The project supports dialogues on local policy issues in 21 districts. At the national level, P4D supports government institutions to deliver on ambitions set out in the 7th Five Year Plan and policies centred around the National Integrity Strategy, the Right to Information Act 2009, Citizens’ Charters and the Grievance Redress System.
