Our Work in Bangladesh

Our Role

2030 WRG is working with key stakeholders in the government, private sector and civil society in Bangladesh to establish and mainstream the Multi-Stakeholder Partnership (Water MSP). Through the MSP and the engagement with the BDP 2100, the 2030 WRG Bangladesh program aims to catalyze transformative projects in industrial, municipal and agricultural sectors to reduce the demand-supply gap through demand-side efficiency measures, improve surface water quality through wastewater treatment and promote integrated water resources management to arrive at optimal solutions at the regional and national levels.

Results

Bangladesh has welcomed the support of the 2030 WRG to develop a collective approach to the country’s water security issues.

Following detailed stakeholder consultations and high-level guidance from the Planning Commission and the Ministry of Water Resources, the 2030 WRG has adopted a two-pronged strategy involving a long-term delta management plan and the proposed national Water MSP, that will be focusing on three work-streams: Water Governance, Greater Dhaka Watershed Restoration and Agri-water.
