Working with the Government of Bangladesh in creating sustainable exit strategiesGroup Presentation

Ovi

  • Involve beneficiaries with longer term GoBprogrammese.gEkti Bari EktiKhumar
  • Diversify beneficiary IGAs
  • Link beneficiaries with relevant training opportunities from GoB (DAE, DOF, DCS)
  • Seek suitable financing options/loans from banks
  • Seek marketing linkages from Local Gov’ marketing departments & DAE (Dept of Agriculture and Extension)
  • Ensure access to family planning services and raise awareness of public services available
  • Linking with local government for Khasland access
  • Encourage savings behaviour / schemes
  • Focus on root cause not response. Nutrition > education > income
slide2

Safety nets are not yet sufficient – very small amounts. Similarly school stipend also. These need to be re-visited. However, the government is unable to yet afford this. As economic conditions improve this will change.

Abdul & Hasina

  • Create specific policy to help slum dwellers and recognise problems of urban poverty
  • Link with GoBprogrammese.g – FerayCholo, EBEK
  • Encourage urban  rural migration with programmes like EBEK and also khasland transfer
  • Ensure public health services
  • Increase provision of vocational training for young women
  • Provide youth development training to jobless youths and provide seed money for business development
  • In urban environment real need for low cost housing (long term) and basic services
  • GoB has policy to reduce rural to urban migration – need to defuse/de-centralise focus on Dhaka/Chittagong – therefore is it realistic to expect investment in slum services?
slide3

Rakhul

  • Social safety net enrollment – old aged allowance, disability allowance
  • Diversification of IGAs (livestock, rickshaw, van)
  • Introduce savings plan for enrollment in Ekti Bari EktiKhumar where government will contribute to savings.
  • Linkages, particularly with livestock, fisheries, health, agriculture

Sophia

  • Involvement in FearyCholo ‘Return to home’ and Ekti Bari EktiKhumar
  • Ensure IGAs are appropriate to context for sustainability
  • Need for policy focus on reducing rural to urban migration and for development of rural locations
  • Need for wide ranging government umbrella project covering slums including health etc
  • Eviction policy must be fair and come with re-habilitation this is an issue that needs to followed up.
themes
Themes

    • Health
    • Low cost housing
    • Education & vocational training

If you implemented your ideas for this beneficiary what obstacles or problems do you think you would encounter?

  • Are the ideas realistic in terms of resources needed (time, money, expertise?)
  • Are they against the interest of others? Would you encounter resistance from some groups?
  • How do you think these obstacles could be overcome?
  • What measures do NGOs and the GoB need to take?
    • For example do NGOs need to be better at communicating?
    • For example do NGOs need to have more liaison with the government?
    • Do we need more linkages between NGO and GoBprogrammes?
slide6

Comments on obstacles and viability of suggestions:

  • Financing from banks difficult for extreme poor – they are not attractive prospect. A need exists for GoB to advocate / regulate banks to service the extreme poor
  • Facilitating effective market linkages very difficult. The GoB are making efforts here with a plan for a farmers corner in every village cutting out the middle man. EBEK also has provision
  • Improved marketing linkages is viable, especially if we utilise existing GoB assets – mobile network, local infrastructure (such as union information centres)
  • A very significant challenge is in linking the extreme poor with services that already exist – is this a role that NGOs can play
  • But on the other hand, do we need 55,000 NGOs in Bangladesh? Is this part of the problem? – Gov’ & NGO networks need to be more closely integrated
