Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS)
Most of the professionals of the organisation have training, research and working/academic experiences in the western universities.
BCAS AIMS TO:
- Develop appropriate scientific methodologies to address the long-term planning, participatory methodologies and people's issues
- Develop a database on RMED
- Develop capable human resource and mobilise expert manpower to address peoples' issues in Bangladesh and other developing countries
It has a small core activity with two full-time directors, ten senior level professionals, a dozen full-time midlevel research and a dozen full-time field researchers and sufficient computer/information and logistic staff. But BCAS's main strength is its NATIONAL FELLOWS who are experts working in universities, research centres, national and international agencies, NGOs and in the private sector. There is also a large body of INTERNATIONAL FELLOWS who work or have expertise in RMED issues or in Bangladesh.
At the national policy level the BCAS Fellows interact closely with policy planners, government agencies, donors and NGOs so that the results of BCAS research can be used at both policy and implementation levels. BCAS also works on people's developmental and environmental issues and attempts to incorporate these to the national policy and planning.
