Bangladesh is committed to a corruption-free and inclusive government.
Platforms for Dialogue (P4D), a European Union-funded project in partnership with the Cabinet Division, is working to improve good governance and engage civil society organisations and citizens in government accountability mechanisms. With our partners, Platforms for Dialogue is increasing awareness of citizen rights, promoting democratic ownership, and supporting government officials to improve accountability and responsiveness. Implemented through the British Council, the three-year, 13 Million Euro project is a unique initiative that is working directly with both citizens and CSOs as well as the government to address reforms.
The project is propelled by a number of lively Civil Society Organisations operating at the grassroots level. P4D’s key intervention is capacity building for local civil society organisations and representatives of local government bodies. At the local level, the project supports discussions on 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. The project focuses on policies regarding the National Integrity Strategy, the Right to Information Act 2009, the Grievance Redress System and Citizens’ Charters.
