Debate on poverty eradication
The project 'Bangladesh Priorities' set out to have a conversation on what is best for Bangladesh. In that spirit, I welcome the commentary from Nick Beresford of UNDP Bangladesh on September 29. His concerns merit a considered response.
Copenhagen Consensus and partner BRAC worked closely with more than 30 academics from Bangladesh and abroad – from Dhaka University to Yale – to examine 76 investments and interventions including TB treatment, supplements in pregnancy, delaying child marriage with education, and different kinds of cash transfers. More than thirty peer-reviewed, brand-new research papers were published online for free use, and the key research findings were shared with The Daily Star readers.
