Fight Poverty: What's the best way to do it?

Bangladesh Priorities project is proud to publish the first academic research highlighting the smartest ways of fighting extreme poverty in Bangladesh.

When it comes to the biggest challenges facing Bangladesh, surely poverty is one of the most crucial. And there is still much work to be done.

Despite cutting the rate of extreme poverty from 34 percent in 2000 to just 13 percent today, 20 million Bangladeshis still live in conditions considered to be ultra poor. Living on less than Tk. 43 per day can be immensely difficult, and for some, it can create a trap that's almost impossible to escape.
