The last two decades in Bangladesh have seen progress in poverty reduction. Individual projects have demonstrated positive results in core areas of development in the country such as agriculture, health, and emergency planning.

Moreover, the sustainability of impacts is continually threatened given Bangladesh’s increasingly complex risk environment.
