A project to facilitate greater of the private sector in development initiatives

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to launch a project to facilitate greater of the private sector in development initiatives. “The Project on Public Private Innovation will feature a Data Analytics Hub which will quantify Private Sector contributions to Bangladesh’s Social, Economic and Environmental development. The 2017 pilot will be funded by the UNDP Bangkok Regional Bureau for Asia-Pacific.” However, as the Spotlight on Sustainable Development 2017 reports (p. 73), research from Dhaka, Bangladesh and Jakarta, Indonesia shows that privatization “has increased the physical and emotional burden placed on women slum dwellers in those cities.”
