The Union Parishad Governance Project (UPGP) is part of the overall programmatic framework for UNDP and UNCDF support to the Government of Bangladesh Local Governance reforms, supported by the European Union (EU), the Governments of Switzerland (SDC) and Denmark (Danida).
This UPGP document is complemented by the programmatic framework document itself and the partner project UZGP that provides support to the Upazila Parishads (UZP) level of local government as part of the wider Local Government Support Program.
In this regard the UPGP and UZGP projects will have horizontal and vertical linkages throughout their implementation. In terms of project management there will be a shared implementation team(s) supporting both projects. Programmatically, both projects will share a common output covering policy and capacity development frameworks.
