We work with the Bangladesh government and development partners to fight poverty and help build a prosperous and stable country

Bangladesh faces several challenges, which include meeting the demands of a large and increasingly urban population while dealing with the shocks of natural disasters and climate change.

The UK’s strategy for its development work in Bangladesh builds on the progress already made and aims to help the country achieve its ambition to become a middle-income country that no longer needs aid.

To maximise the impact of UK aid for poor people, we are prioritising approaches that we know work well, and we are developing new ways of working in tougher areas.

DFID funds many organisations who are working to end poverty through open competition. Find out more about how our funding schemes work and the application processes.

For detailed information on our programme and what the UK spends on development in Bangladesh, see the DFID Bangladesh operational plan 2014. See also our Development Tracker to explore international development projects funded by the UK government by country and sector.
