MyConstituency

DATA-DRIVEN DECISION MAKING THAT LEAVES NO ONE BEHIND

Unlike Senators in the United States, MPs in Bangladesh are not simply lawmakers enacting legislative duties but also act as local development champions for their respective constituencies.


This distinction is vital in Bangladesh. A voter from Bandarban does not vote based on the laws he thinks his MP would act. Rather, the voter expects them to aid in local development, be it the need for improved public health facilities, the quality of schools, requirement for a bridge or advice on the allocation of social safety nets.


‘My Constituency’ is a unique data platform devel- oped by a2i, in collaboration with the Bangladesh Parliament Secretariat and UNDP Bangladesh. It builds on the foundation of the SDG Tracker and creates a localized lens of development that enables MPs to know both the development progress and the development targets set nationally, while simultaneously helping shape those targets and achieve progress locally, in their respective constituencies. It also supports the overall progress of the SDG agenda of the central government by enabling decentralized monitoring of area-based development.
