Bangladesh - College Education Development Project : framework and guidelines for small ethnic communities plan (English)

The development objectives of the College Education Development Project (CEDP) for Bangladesh are to strengthen the strategic planning and management capacity of the college education subsector and to improve the teaching and learning environment of participating colleges. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) ensure that small ethnic communities (SEC) are aware of and have easy access to the grievance redress mechanisms; (2) the national university (NU) and colleges will need to set up a procedure to address complaints and grievances regarding CEDP procedural irregularities and environmental and social guidelines; (3) training on SEC needs and sensitivity will be given to colleges’ faculty members; and (4) at least 50 percent of stipend holders among SEC are girls and recruitment of SEC female teachers in SEC predominant areas.
