  • To enhance Upazila ADP by providing a yen-loan to expand the expenditure by local government institutions (LGIs) toward proper public service delivery and infrastructure development led by Upazila Parishad and Union Parishad/ Union Development Coordination Committee (UDCC);
  • To improve mutual accountability between LGIs and NBDs both at Upazila and Union levels, and to facilitate synergy effects of their cooperation for better public service delivery;
  • To improve transparency of both LGIs (Upazila Parishad and Union Parishad) and NBDs to local communities through UDCC and other good governance measures;
  • To strengthen the capacity of LGIs’ and NBDs’ staff and their collaboration mechanism; and
  • To facilitate an appropriate decentralization process.
