Abstract Under the UN umbrella the UNESCO and the World Bank are working for the education and development issues. They are working for the same targets but have unique working styles with many similarities and differences. Through this paper we tried to bring out all the hidden issues of multilateral organizations for the sake of development and educational improvement. This paper is fully based on secondary information from different books articles journals reports and electrical sources and we consider in the context of Bangladesh as a case because both organizations have been working for a long time in Bangladesh and it is one of the rapidly-developing countries. It has a big primary education system due to its over population. Similarly it tries to implement EFA program in the country. As we find that to implement EFA in the country both the UNESCO and the World Bank are helping Bangladesh. More specifically UNESCO is helping on the technical parts of education like- quality improvement teacher training policy making and other sections as per needs analysis. On the other hand the World Bank is helping by donating money in some terms and conditions. Ultimately due to financial strength the World Bank is found to have a strong influence in development sector and therefore in a way imposes policy to the developing nations. On the other hand UNESCO seems to provide standard education system without any condition.
