This report offers an approach to, and analysis of, rural poverty in Bangladesh which is clearly an alternative to much conventional thinking. It focuses specifically on the very poor rural majority and situates them within the wider social and political realities of the country. It is qualitative as well as quantitative and goes beyond the usual definitions and measurements of poverty to try to understand the processes and causes of impoverishment. Two sets of questions are tackled in particular.

Bangladesh has shown a lot of promise and resilience by pushing ahead with the national development agenda, reflected in declining poverty and rising economic growth. However, events over the past 12 months suggest that the country’s macroeconomy was under strain. It is therefore imperative that the government should take quick actions to correct the situation. While, the restoration of macroeconomic balance is an immediate priority, Bangladesh continues to remain a low income developing economy with a substantial long-term development agenda.

The policy of eradication of poverty has much wider and deeper content than the policy for provision of employment. Such a policy should guarantee that a person be able to control his own fate. Programmes narrowly focusing on employment generation Issue miss this point. Women constitute the neglected, often heavily abused, half of the society. Sometimes, for the sake of nicety of discussion, mentions are made about their physical existence, but very little in terms of concrete actions emerges from these discussions.

Contrary to popular belief, Bangladesh has a large capital goods sector capable of manufacturing various items of machinery and equipment, even of sophisticated types. However, much of the capacity is lying idle with adverse consequences on the growth of the country.
