Deccelerated Decline

State of Poverty in Bangladesh 2012deccelerated decline

Successive governments have taken several initiatives for reduction in poverty, yet the poverty persists and challenges continue to evolve. The problem arises in their failings to conceptualise that poverty is manifestation of social property relationship, embedded in institutions, structures, power, and reality and composition of the state.

The research finds a slowdown in reduction in poverty in recent years and reveals concerns, particularly if a forecast is made on the basis of current trend, suggesting that the rate of decline may further decelerate, leaving the target of poverty reduction of the government at bay. An attempt, thus, has been pursued towards analysing the causes of slower reduction in poverty in the recent years.
