Under Pillar 2 of JCP, the Bangladesh Metamodel (BMM)-an operational decision-support tool is being developed. The BMM will aid the formulation, analysis and evaluation of alternative projects and programs for the implementation of BDP2100. The BMM will help apply adaptive delta planning (IWRM and ICZM) by key stakeholders such as the General Economics Division (GED), Ministry of Water Resources (MoWR) and concerned agencies in investment planning and integrated assessment. Another important objective of the programme is to build capacity at different agencies in Bangladesh for developing, using and owning the Metamodel, and develop a structure to embed its maintenance and operation in an effective way. The BMM is developed in close collaboration with the project “Support to the Implementation of the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 (SIBDP2100)”.
Additionally, the research results from the sub-projects under Pillar 1 of JCP would provide data and information which would contribute to the preparation of adaptive basin management plans and programmes of SIBDP2100.
The Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 is a longer-term strategic plan, approved by the Bangladesh government in 2018. It has been prepared by the General Economics Division (GED) of the Bangladesh Planning Commission and is supported by the Government of The Netherlands. BDP 2100 is a combination of long-term strategies and short-medium-long term interventions for ensuring long term water and food security, economic growth and environmental sustainability while effectively reducing vulnerability to natural disasters and building resilience to climate change and other delta challenges through robust, adaptive and integrated strategies, and equitable water governance.
SIBDP2100- Support to the implementation of the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 is the 2nd phase of the project where an adaptive basin management programme is being developed.
JCP is engaging in applied research based on actual questions raised in different studies as knowledge gaps. JCP through its research outputs and also capacity-building training programmes would enable the Bangladeshi policymakers, implementers and civil society representatives in their decision-making process as well as the implementation of projects, e.g. implementation of the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 (BDP2100).

4 years from 2019 to 2022.
JCP is funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in Bangladesh (EKN) and the research organizations themselves (R&D funding).
JCP-related sub-project activities are organized by the partner organization with support from the Netherland Embassy and Planning Commission of GED in Bangladesh. The subprojects were undertaken based on an approved research proposal from each of the partner agencies. Each research proposal or project is based on a knowledge question identified by the ‘knowledge client’ mostly a government counterpart from the Bangladesh side. The aim of the research is, to develop new knowledge utilizing existing information, expert opinions, local and international experiences with close involvement of the knowledge client in the design of the research, in order to ensure that the research result helps answer the question. JCP also focuses on training and capacity development by exchange and learning within and between the organizations. Management is done through the Senior Management Team, which meets twice a year, and which is supported by the OMT, the Operational Management Team, consisting of representatives of all 4 organizations, who are responsible for a major area of the project management, communication, and outreach, research and knowledge development, and training and capacity development.
There are currently 6 sub-projects.
JCP consist of two pillars. Pillar 1 has further been divided into four work packages and Pillar 2 has 2 work packages.
In JCP a pillar is a sub-programme. There are 2 pillars in JCP namely Pillar 1 is Knowledge development, consisting of various sub-projects and Pillar 2 is Bangladesh Meta Model.
WP means “Work Package.”
The overall JCP objective is: “To carry out a long-term knowledge sharing and capacity building program between Bangladesh and Netherlands institutes mainly working in the water and related sectors.”
Within the JCP there are 4 partners: the Institute of Water Modelling (IWM), and the Centre for Environmental and Geographic Information Services (CEGIS) from Bangladesh, while from The Netherlands the Wageningen University and Research (WUR) and Deltares are involved.
The Joint Cooperation Programme Bangladesh – The Netherlands is a 4 applied research program between Bangladesh and The Netherlands.
