SUN Civil Society Alliance - Bangladesh

By on 6 December 2017

In this video, we hear from Belal Uddin a member of the SUN Civil Society Alliance (CSA) in Bangladesh.

Belal discusses the importance of civil society working in partnerships with other stakeholder groups such as the media and parliamentarians. In particular, he talks about the CSAs work to support capacity building for journalists in reporting on nutrition issues. He also reflects on the challenges the CSA has faced due to changes in internal governmental structures.

Belal emphasises the willingness of the CSA to work with the private sector, but highlights the practical challenges in achieving this, such as potential conflicts of interests.
