About ICCD

ICCD is a world class institute for human resource development, human capacity building and organizational development.

Our Purpose

We exist to be an integral part of the mammoth task of national capacity building of Bangladesh in all sectors i.e., private sector, public sector, and non-government sector.
During the recent years Bangladesh has been experiencing a steady annual economic growth of approximately 7%, despite the pandemic situation in 2020 and 2021. This growth has helped remarkably in reduction of poverty and rise in the per capita income. Most of the major macroeconomic parameters during the period have also been relatively stronger than ever before.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh has achieved several Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in a number of areas including significant improvements in Human Development Index (HDI) and Human Capital Index (HCI). In the context of the government’s commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030, it will be fair to estimate that favorable trajectories in the economic and political environment will prevail in the foreseeable future, and Bangladesh will be in a position to take a leap into the next level of socio-economic development. The graduation from the LDC status is knocking on the door of reality, most likely to happen by the year 2026.
Further in the future, Bangladesh is expected to reap the benefits of the first demographic dividends resulting from the increase in the number of working age population compared to the number of dependent population for a period of one decade, starting from 2030.
However, benefits of demographic dividend should not be taken for granted. A number of vital factors must be considered for the materialization of a well-planned human capital development scheme before such benefits can be reaped.
The Government of Bangladesh and the leaders of the business communities unanimously agree that apart from the needs for more skilled workers, Bangladeshi industries, both public and private, also need more competent management and technical professionals. Without the competent management and leadership, Bangladesh will not be able to take the leverage from its competitive advantages. Therefore, all the stakeholders i.e. various ministries and departments of the Government of Bangladesh, industrial and corporate sectors, business chambers and non-government organizations are now involving themselves in developing the capacity of the workforce of Bangladeshi organizations, regardless of public or private sectors.
With the above view for human capital development in Bangladesh, International Center for Capacity Development (ICCD) has been incorporated as a private organization with the vision of becoming a significant part of the overall development of our nation by contributing to the process of human and organizational capacity building.
