In the Spotlight

Bangladesh has succeeded in achieving a steady reduction of poverty incidence, with the population living below the national poverty line steadily falling over the past 2 decades. The country is now on track to achieve most of the Millennium Development Goals.
Under the country partnership strategy, 2011-2015, for Bangladesh, ADB supports the efforts of the government to make growth more inclusive and greener by improving connectivity, promoting skills, improving financial markets, boosting energy efficiency and access, promoting public-private partnerships, making cities more livable, improving the management of water resources, and reducing flood risk.
