Description

This brief explores the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Technical Assistance (TA) 4320-BAN: Social Protection for Poor Female Workers in the Garment Sector in the Context of Changing Trade Environments Project in Bangladesh, and argues that a long-term view on social protection and preventive measures to protect women from further slipping into poverty would address humanitarian and the overall poverty reduction concerns in the country.
