I worked as the Senior Sector Adviser in the Institutional Development Component (IDC) of Danida’s Water and Sanitation Program Support to Bangladesh. The IDC was implemented through the Unit for Policy Implementation (UPI) located in the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives, for assisting Government of Bangladesh (GoB) in implementing the National Policy for Safe Water and Sanitation, 1998.

I assisted the government in finalizing the Sector Development Framework, Sector Development Programme, Institutional Review, Pro-poor strategy, Sanitation strategy, and Cost-Sharing strategy for the country on the principles of enhanced local governance through sector-wide consultations with stakeholders and development partners.

I also initiated the pilot on Public-Private Partnership and a web-enabled MIS on Sanitation.
