27 avril 2023

This study reflects a comprehensive look at poverty in Dhaka with an aim to
provide the basis for an urban poverty reduction strategy for the Government of
Bangladesh, local authorities, donors, and NGOs. While the needs in Dhaka are
enormous, this study focuses on analyzing those critical for the poor – understanding the
characteristics and dynamics of poverty, issues of employment, land and housing, basic
services, and crime and violence. This analysis will provide a platform for developing
recommendations for policy reform as Dhaka endeavors to meet the growing challenges
and urgent needs of the urban poor. Each chapter concludes with a set of recommended
priorities for poverty reduction.
