Welcome to Joint Cooperation Programme (JCP)

With the Delta Plan 2100 approved, Bangladesh is now moving forward for its implementation. This requires new projects to be taken up, triggering new knowledge questions. The Joint Cooperation Program Bangladesh-the Netherlands, briefly JCP, is a four-year long research and cooperation project, to support water-related societal challenges in Bangladesh. The general objective of JCP is to carry out a long-term knowledge sharing and capacity building program between Bangladesh and Dutch institutes in the water sector. Deltares, CEGIS, IWM and WUR are the partner in this project, each providing their own contribution, complemented by support provided through the Royal Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with the goal to strengthen their longer term collaboration.

During the inception phase, the JCP identified knowledge clients’ needs, and matched these with their joint capacities.  The envisioned research shall take place through side-by-side planning and implementation processes.  Officially launched in June 2019 and was completed on 30 November 2022.
