Govt to manage foreign-funded CHT project


Instead of donor agencies, the government will take responsibility of the overall management of a seven-year project meant for development of three districts of Chittagong Hill Tract (CHT), official sources said.The US$ 250-million project will begin next year (2016) while the current scheme, CHT Development Facility Project, of the United Nations that began in 2003 will end in September this year.Secretary of CHT Affairs Ministry Nabo Bikram Kishore Tripura said the UN has submitted a proposal for the new project and it is under process.The main aspect of the project is that its overall management will be in the hands of the government, he said.This project will have three pillars—livelihood, social development and good governance, he said, adding that different programmes would be taken under those pillars in conformity with the government’s long-term policies, he said. -BSS, Rangamati
