Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD)

Year of Publication:


Bangladesh recently held general elections and a new government is now in place. Amidst the country’s many priorities, though, which issues are most important for poverty reduction? From 28-29 March 2009, the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) consulted with members of parliament, policy-makers, academics, activists, development practitioners and civil society to identify key action points for the government. The proceedings of the meeting were submitted to the government in the run-up to the release of the budget for fiscal year 2009-10.
Consultations were held in the areas of:

macroeconomic management in the face of the global economic crisis
food security and price inflation
the energy sector
ICT for development
the 100-Day Employment Generation Programme (100-DEGP)
