Abstract

The major objective of this paper is to look into the overall impact of the existing safety net programmes on poverty reduction in Bangladesh, in terms of the persisting inequality. It also discusses a number of programmes that have been considered to be successful in other countries of the world, and highlights the current scenario of Bangladesh. In the final section, the paper provides a number of policy suggestions on design, target and coverage of the existing safety net programmes.
