A survey of rural livelihoods and enterprise development opportunities in the Chars, Bangladesh.

Abstract

The first half of this paper provides a brief overview of the agro-economic and natural resource base of the Chars (vegetated sandbars created by rivers in Bangladeh). The second half of the paper then considers the rural livelihoods of the poor in the Chars areas, and the role of specific sub-sectors and emerging rural economic and enterprise development issues. This is based upon a small survey conducted by the authors and case studies of key informants
