Non-State Actor Report on Social Protection: A Mapping of Social Protection Needs for the Marginalized Communities in Bangladesh

The “Non-State Actors Report on Social Protection: Mapping Social Protection for Marginalized Communities in Bangladesh” offers a comprehensive examination of Bangladesh’s social protection system in regard to marginalized communities. The report begins by providing an overview of the social protection landscape in Bangladesh, analyzing the legal and policy frameworks, institutional arrangements, and the array of social protection programs for marginalized communities implemented by various stakeholders, including the government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other entities. The mapping exercise identified 11 major marginalized groups and their distinct challenges. Recognizing and addressing their unique social protection needs is an important aspect of good social protection policy. The report emphasizes the importance of a multifaceted approach to address the vulnerabilities and challenges faced by marginalized populations, including specific recommendations. The report highlights the need for an inclusive and comprehensive strategy for social protection targeted at marginalized communities considering the intersectionality of these vulnerabilities. It emphasizes the importance of refining targeting mechanisms and improving coordination among stakeholders to ensure efficient resource allocation and reaching the intended beneficiaries. Robust monitoring and evaluation systems are also advocated to assess the impact of social protection interventions and guide evidence-based policymaking. In addition, the report underscores the importance of strengthening institutional capacity and governance mechanisms to ensure the effective implementation of social protection programs. It calls for enhanced coordination and collaboration between government agencies, NGOs, and civil society organizations to leverage their respective expertise and resources.
