Coastal Development Partnership (CDP) is a not-for-profit, public interest serving progressive development & environmental activist organization, working in Bangladesh. On January 01, 1997, CDP was instituted as a coordinating secretariat for a network of NGOs trying to relieve the sufferings of the people of the waterlogged areas in the southwest coastal region of Bangladesh.
CDP has been implementing various pro-poor, gender sensitive project implementation, multidisciplinary action research & evidence based policy advocacy to ensure sustainable livelihood of the poor, safeguard biodiversity & ecosystem including the Sundarban Mangrove Forest,
The evolution of CDP as coordinating secretariat for a network of NGOs had played a role for the organization to continue capacity building of the grassroots level NGOs/CBOs and maintain network approach for program implementation and policy advocacy. It is a two-way process that centers on building a relationship of mutual respect and trust.
