Nutrition - Small investments can make a huge impact

2016-08-04

Bangladesh has made great strides in many areas, including poverty eradication and life expectancy. There are still many opportunities for investments that improve the nation's future and transform lives.

Recently, a high-level team of prominent Bangladeshi development and economics leaders and a Nobel Laureate in Economics identified a prioritised list of such opportunities. They were tasked with answering the question: “What policies and investments would give Bangladesh the most impact for every taka spent?” 

My think-tank, the Copenhagen Consensus Center, commissioned teams of dozens of specialist economists from Bangladesh, South Asia, and around the world to study 76 concrete solutions to improve the future of the country.
