Efficient and Accountable Local Governance (EALG)
Strengthening local governance has been a key focus of the government of Bangladesh and different donor agencies. Considering the importance of the issue, UNDP has been working to strengthen the local governance system in Bangladesh for more than a decade. UNDP lead support projects to the LGIs have played an important role in reforming the Union Parishad (UP) and Upazila Parishad (UZP) tier of government. UNDP in collaboration with SDC and DANIDA has developed this project titled Efficient and Accountable Local Governance (EALG) with the aim to strengthen the capacities of local governments (Upazila Parishad and Union Parishad) to foster participatory local development.
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen capacities of local governments and other stakeholders to foster participatory local development service delivery for the SDGs. Since the Upazila Governance Project (UZGP) and Union Parishad Governance Projects (UPGP) phased out in early 2017, UNDP in collaboration with SDC and DANIDA has planned to support Upazila Parishad and Union Parishad through one project entitled ‘Efficient and Accountable Local Governance (EALG)’
EALG will have three components
i. Strengthening Capacities of Upazila Parishad to Improve Service Delivery
ii. Enhancing Capacities of Union Parishad for Participatory Local Development; and
iii. Policy for Effective Local Governance (PELG).
