Rural Development in Bangladesh since Independence: A Study on Progress and Performance

Rural Development in Bangladesh since Independence: A Study on Progress and Performance

Rural development has been the core focus of the Bangladesh economic policies since her independence. The rural sector is pivotal to the country‟s economic, social and political development. This paper examines the Bangladesh rural development policies, strategies and programs since Independence in 1971. Secondary data were used and collected from various sources especially from BBS and HIES. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistical tools such as mean and percentage to reach the objectives. Results of this study show that the share of agricultural sector in the country‟s GDP has declined which is an indicator of a country‟s progress from an agriculture-based to an export-oriented economy. The success of the agricultural and rural programs in Bangladesh is reflected in the reduction in the poverty incidence in the rural sector from almost 54 percent in the 1983-84 to about 35 percent in 2009-10. Development efforts of Bangladesh are governed by the twin objectives of achieving growth with equity and reducing poverty. The government policy has to some extent achieved the intended results but poverty and inequality are still significant and apparent. Hence, rural development continues to be an important agenda to the country‟s development effort.

The contribution of rural institutions to rural development: Study of smallholder farmer groups and NGOs in Uganda

The contribution of rural institutions to rural development: Study of smallholder farmer groups and NGOs in Uganda

This paper presents results from a quantitative analysis of the contribution of non- governmental organisations (NGOs) and smallholder farmer groups as sample rural institutions in addressing four main rural developmental objectives via improving health, education, agriculture and industry. The study involved 87 respondents from 40 organizations including19 NGOs and 21 smallholder farmer groups from central region of Uganda. Data from questionnaires, focus group discussions, interviews, key informants and literature reviews were used in the study. The results suggest that improving health, hence rural development is strongly related to investing in increased awareness and access and sharing of healthcare information, effective health policy formulation and effective delivery of health service. However, and seemingly surprisingly health financing subsidies is found to impact rural development through its negative effect on health improvement. On achieving rural prosperity through better education, this study suggests that the larger the operational reach of the organisations involved as well as spending on R&D are not positive contributors and therefore hurt rural development objective. On the other hand, the larger the personnel number of the rural organisations are, utilization of information technology, more financing and appropriate public education policy are consistent with a priori expectation to improve education and rural development. To increase agricultural contribution to achieving rural prosperity, agricultural resource availability and the larger the geographic operational reach of the rural organisations are found to have strong positive effects. Basic training, access to information and research and extension services and access to factors of production are found to be inimical to agricultural improvement. Appropriate rural policies are found to support rural industry but the larger the operational reach of the organisation are not favourable to rural industrial improvement.

SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS OF RURAL WOMEN AND THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO RURAL DEVELOPMENT: A SOCIOLOGICAL STUDY

The project focuses on the status of women in rural areas and their contribution to rural development. It was found in the field research that the participation rate of women in schools is higher than that of boys. It could be easily observed that most women were Hindus and belonged to either OBC or tribal categories. It was also observed that adults of the village were keen to send their daughters to school, at least on primary level. Another positive aspect was the role and contribution of women in the socio-economic development of village. Women, even though not educated beyond class 9 or 10, were actively working towards development and spreading awareness. But on the negative side, were limited number of girls were opting for higher education, and even lesser number of females is in pursuit of education beyond post graduation. Reasons cited by most of the women opting out of studies were family pressure or marriage. Most women are engaged in primary sector activities, like farming, crop husbandry, etc. But no availability of proper irrigation facilities could be seen in the village. The purpose of agriculture was not to sell the produce and earn profit. These activities were mostly directed towards personal consumption. Use of alcohol (hadia and mahua) could also be seen in women of the village, especially elderly women. Most women were demanded dowry before marriage and were comfortable with the idea of giving dowry. A significant number of women face domestic abuse because of alcohol addiction. A good number of women have bank account in the one branch of BOI situated in the village. Reproductive health facilities are not available in the village- like contraceptive means, sanitary napkins, delivery and abortion facilities, etc. Health sub-centre of the village is not active, and necessary facilities like child delivery are accomplished after the angan wadi workers take the women to hospitals in cities, the nearest one being 20 kms away.

Study of Co operative Societies and its Role in the Rural Development

Study of Co operative Societies and its Role in the Rural Development

Cooperatives provide credit to the farmers, the most desirable thing in the farming. Apart from this cooperatives help farmers by offering top quality fertilizers, seeds, insecticides, pesticides etc at reasonable price. Farmers also get marketing, warehousing facility and transport support from the cooperatives. Service cooperative societies help the poor and marginal farmers with tractors, threshers etc on rent. Rural cooperative societies are now entering into real land, power, insurance, and healthcare and communication sector. If these keep on working with an objective of development then days are not far when quality of rural life would be far healthier than urban India.

E-Information System as a Tool for Rural Development Of India – A Study

E-Information System as a Tool for Rural Development Of India – A Study

Specifically, the adoption of e-government, for many is linked to the idea of good Governance, which in turn is seen as a condition for sustainable development, economic growth and poverty alleviation (Government of Italy and United Nations 2002). Better accountability and improved transparency are seen as the characteristics of good governance and becomes the conditio sine qua non for rich states and international agencies to supply aid to developing countries (Ciborra 2003). Therefore, in current times the purpose of many aid policies is to support the introduction of e-government into developing countries. However, despite this push, empirical research has not conclusively established a positive relation between the use of ICTs and poverty alleviation (Wang 1999; Eggleston et al. 2002; Heeks and Kenny 2002; Wade 2002; Avgerou 2003; Odebra-Straub 2003; Paré 2003; Madon 2004; Thompson 2004).

Rural development through Agripreneurship: A study of farmers in Uttar Pradesh

Rural development through Agripreneurship: A study of farmers in Uttar Pradesh

In U.P., Agriculture plays a dominant role in the economy and growth rate of Agriculture and allied sector is 5.3 percent, that of primary sector is 5.4percent, and the national figure is 4.0 percent. Secondary and Tertiary sectors are also growing very fast in the country as a whole but in U.P. though growth of secondary sector is close to national figure, the tertiary sector is lagging behind. Yet Agriculture and allied sector growth being the lowest has a potential to improve and thus provide boost to the overall economy of the state. The economy of Uttar Pradesh is agrarian and performance of agriculture and allied activities such as horticulture, animal husbandry, dairying and fisheries are critical in determining the growth rate of the State. Development of the rural areas is essential for inclusive and equitable growth and to unlock huge potential of the population that is presently trapped in poverty with its associated deprivation. The incidence of poverty across the state indicates that poverty is very closely linked to the absence of social

Mass Communication and Rural Development: A Study of Palamau Commissionery of Jharkhand State

Mass Communication and Rural Development: A Study of Palamau Commissionery of Jharkhand State

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are rapidly consolidating global communication networks and international trade with implications for people in developing countries. Despite this there is a worrying lack of empirical evidence or analysis of the actual experiences and effects of ICTs upon poor people‟s economic and social livelihoods. The constraints of existing information systems on poor women and men and their intersection with ICTs are also little understood in relation to livelihoods. ICTs are technologies offering new ways for communicating and exchanging information and knowledge. They can be used to enable, or strengthen or replace existing information systems and networks. The challenge for those working in ICTs is to define the particular roles that information can be expected to play and where ICTs might be most effectively applied but equally to clarify and be honest about what they cannot do. The information revolution is an intervention with the potential to ensure that knowledge and information on important technologies, methods and practices are put in the right hands. The relevance of this revolution is supported by Balit[1], who pointed out that the least expensive input for rural development is knowledge. Knowledge and information are basic ingredients of food security and are essential for facilitating rural development and bringing about social and economic change. According to Albert Waterson, as quoted by Cohen[2], the purpose of rural development is “to improve the standard of living of the rural population-is multi-sectoral including agriculture, industry and social facilities”. Rural communities require information inter alia on supply of inputs, new technologies, early warning systems (drought, pests and diseases), credit, market prices and their competitors. The success of green revolution in Asia and Near East indicates that giving rural communities access to knowledge, technology and services will contribute to expanding and energizing agriculture.

Microcredit As A Tool For Rural Development:  A Case Study Of Malaysia

Microcredit As A Tool For Rural Development: A Case Study Of Malaysia

Since the 1990s, there has been a rapid growth of MFIs worldwide. This growth coupled with a near perfect loan recovery rate has been accompanied by development of a variety of loan products offered by individual MFIs. The number of borrowers increased manifold. All borrowers do not fall into the same category. In most instances, MFIs make a distinction of borrowers and offer differentiated loan products to different groups. For example, ASA (pronounced “Asha”), an NGO in Bangladesh offers two types of loans: small loan and small business loan. The size of the initial small loan is comparable to similar microloans offered by other MFIs. It is offered to landless and assetless women. On the other hand, the small business loan is significantly larger in size. This loan is offered to an existing business. The existing business may need the additional capital to either expand its operation or to buy equipment for modernizing its product or to explore new markets for an existing product. Other resourceful MFIs also differentiate between borrowers along the same general line as ASA. The borrowers of MFIs, therefore, may be classified as:
