Counterpart works with local partners in Bangladesh to address the concerns of residents


Although Bangladesh is one of the fastest developing countries in the world, it continues to demonstrate challenges in areas such as economic advancement, food security, diversity, and inclusion. However, Counterpart International has worked with local Bangladeshi organizations, people, and the government to implement projects that promote rights for marginalized communities, increase transparency through leadership development programs, promote civic participation, and ameliorate environmental resilience.

One of our leading programs includes the USAID-funded Promoting Advocacy Rights (PAR) project which has successfully provided such support and additional technical support to local civil society organizations, improving the government’s response to citizens. Other programs have reduced drivers for malevolent practices in the corruption cycle by increasing oversight and supporting procurement systems. Counterpart is working with local organizations in Bangladesh to improve accountability and capacity-building capabilities between the government and the public.
