Bangladesh was admitted to the United Nations in 1974. Since this beginning, Bangladesh has been an active member of the global community. Bangladesh has been playing a significant role in international peacekeeping activities. All in all, the country has participated in 18 Peacekeeping missions, with almost 8,700 peacekeepers deployed since UNIMOG, including important contributions such as the first all-women's police force in Haiti. The commitment of Bangladesh to protect peace is underpinned by the UN principles of equality, tolerance, freedom, peace and non-violence, principles which are also enshrined in the country's Constitution.
Since January 2016, planning and implementation of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) began that were adopted as 2030 Agenda. United Nations in Bangladesh and the Government of Bangladesh are working closely to achieve these goals and related targets by 2030. It serves as a reminder of the ethos of the UN and Bangladesh partnership.
