UZPAB

Upazila Parishad Association of Bangladesh (UZPAB)

UZPAB was born out of the need to promote collaboration between Upazila Councils. Countrywide conventions were organized to discuss the challenges facing the councils. Consequently , an election was held among council-members to form the Upazila Parishad Association of Bangladesh (UZPAB) in 2011. USAID and SDLG project have provided tireless technical support in this regard.
