Top Ideas for Governance and Institutions
In June of 2015, Bangladesh Priorities held a roundtable of sector experts to discuss the best solutions for combating Bangladesh’s governance and institutional challenges. Combined with in-depth interviews and review of the 26 background studies of the 7th Five Year Plan (7FYP) and the Plan itself, the most notable ideas focused on: supporting the national service process simplification (SPS) public service delivery innovation process, expanding e-Filing system across all government offices, creation of separate court benches to deal with different types of cases (e.g. land disputes, customs, port clearance, financial frauds), scaling-up and strengthening of village courts, introducing a computerized court case tracking system that is publicly accessible.
The prominent ideas are highlighted in the following presentation.
