Information for Potential Partners
The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is a part of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland. SDC has been working in Bangladesh since its independence. At present, SDC in Bangladesh is working the two thematic areas of Employment and Income Generation and Local Governance.
SDC’s cooperation principle is to concentrate its development effort on limited areas of activity in order to achieve the greatest possible impact. Typically, SDC does not take on projects on short-term basis; rather, tries to establish long-term partnerships to achieve greater effectiveness.
Therefore, scope for new contributions and partnerships is limited. Nonetheless, institutions, registered in Bangladesh may submit enquiries, requests, organizational profiles or other relevant documents at the reception of SDC office. Requests should be consistent with SDC programme priorities in Bangladesh and should only be made after careful review of all relevant information.
Organizations are requested to provide e-mail/ mailing addresses. SDC reserves the right to take any decision about the submitted documents and is not obligated to return the same. SDC will respond by e-mail or post, only when it deems necessary.
SDC does not offer individual scholarships or internships in Bangladesh.
