Long Term Effect of Livelihood Promotion Types of Social Security Programmes in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is in the pathway of attaining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In order to achieve the goals, it is imperative to ensure inclusive development and end poverty and therefore, a concrete livelihood programme or public works model is essential. Public works programmes have been observed as “win-win” by generating employment, creating assets, and more specifically providing welfare transfer.

Research Objectives

  • To identify how the Government of Bangladesh’s livelihood social security programmes are affecting the long-term welfare of the citizenry, and whether they provide a better value for money over direct cash transfers or not.
  • To find out whether livelihood graduation programmes have any long-term impact on beneficiaries or not.

Methodological approaches

  • Deploys a survey technique on SWAPNO beneficiaries to compare it with baseline and end line, and
  • Compares between cash transfer and graduation programme using HIES 2016 data
