  • January 02, 2018


In the framework of the joint UNDP-UNCDF Upazila Governance Project (UZGP) and Union Parishad Governance Project (UPGP), three batches of trainings on financial decentralization and local development, conducted by the Hague Academy for Local Governance, took place in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, to increase the awareness of central and local government officials, as well as UN staff, on the importance of gradually but steadily moving towards decentralization for ensuring a more equitable and sustainable development in the country.

The trainings strongly highlighted that sustainable development should be achieved at local level and that government services should be provided at the lowest government level since the local government can provide those services in an efficient manner in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity.
