Poverty Reduction In Bangladesh: Absence Of A National Framework, An Abundance Of Donors’ Strategies


  • Debapriya Bhattacharya
  • Rashed A.M. Titumir


The paper highlights the problem that Bangladesh has never had a homegrown holistic dynamic strategic framework to combat poverty nor has a clearly articulated operational approach been developed to address the issue. Rather, agendas for poverty alleviation had remained largely donor driven and Bangladesh has been exposed to a plethora of advice and assistance from its development partners for the purpose of alleviating poverty.
