Strategic Partnership Agreement

UK Government

The UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty. It is ending the need for aid by creating jobs, unlocking the potential of girls and women and helping to save lives when humanitarian emergencies hit.

In Bangladesh, the UK government works with the Bangladesh government and development partners to fight poverty and help build a prosperous and stable country.

Bangladesh faces several challenges, which include meeting the demands of a large and increasingly urban population while dealing with the shocks of natural disasters and climate change.

The UK’s strategy for its development work in Bangladesh builds on the progress already made and aims to help the country achieve its ambition to become a middle-income country that no longer needs aid.

To maximise the impact of UK aid for poor people, the UK government is prioritising approaches that it knows work well, and it is developing new ways of working in tougher areas.

For detailed information on DFID programme and what the UK spends on development in Bangladesh, see the DFID Bangladesh operational plan 2014. See also the Development Tracker to explore international development projects funded by the UK government by country and sector.
