dc.description.abstract "Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) have become life blood for the society in Bangladesh for development especially rural development. A wide variety of services to people, generating employment, mobilizing public opinion, and influencing governmental policies have become a regular practice of NGOs in Bangladesh. They remain as a vital link to the donor community and are a substantial cultural, political and economic presence in the country. They are involved in many crucial sectors of the economy involving gender issues, education, health and microfinance. NGOs are significant ally active in influencing politically important issues relating generally to gender, poverty, corruption and particularly the activities of civil society. There exists an additional dimension to the efforts made by the NGOs and the steps taken by them in an attempt to raise consciousness and to empower people. This has led to alter how citizens in Bangladesh view their rights and obligation in society. Although various studies of specific organizations of NGOs exist, but no study so far dedicatedly targeted to the common management issues and the potential role of NGOs are seen available. The quest for the present study is to look into issues whether NGOs are active in interacting with Commons in Bangladesh. The paper will venture into the character of their activities and try to figure out wheather their activities can be substantially linked to management of Common property interests. It will be much easier if NGO activities can be linked to common issue. The major focus will be on the wetland management taking into couple of vital wetland management practices in Bangladesh. It seems that NGOs are potential source in managing vital water bodies in Bangladesh in the realm of Common management scenario." en_US
