Gram Bangla model for poverty alleviation and self‐reliance

Gram Bangla model for poverty alleviation and self‐reliance Discusses the problems resulting from Bangladesh’s dependence on agriculture in the light of regular flooding, lack of opportunity for employment in other areas, increasing poverty, and unequal distribution of income. In order to alleviate these problems the Gram Bangla model has been devised with emphasis on community education, training, health care, water supply, sanitation, income generation, tree plantation and conservation (with special regard to fuel for cooking), disaster mitigation, cultural activities, research, awareness generation, and local government institutions. It is hoped that this model can be extended to alleviating similar problems in other under‐developed countries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Social Economics Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Discusses the problems resulting from Bangladesh’s dependence on agriculture in the light of regular flooding, lack of opportunity for employment in other areas, increasing poverty, and unequal distribution of income. In order to alleviate these problems the Gram Bangla model has been devised with emphasis on community education, training, health care, water supply, sanitation, income generation, tree plantation and conservation (with special regard to fuel for cooking), disaster mitigation, cultural activities, research, awareness generation, and local government institutions. It is hoped that this model can be extended to alleviating similar problems in other under‐developed countries.
