The aim of this study is to evaluate Practical Action's Natural Resources System Programme (NRSP) by assessing the potential for innovation, diversification and market orientation of microenterprises (MEs), against the Rural Economic and Enterprise Development (henceforth REED) framework. We also consider REED utility for development practitioners and its potential impact in terms of achieving enterprise development, poverty reduction and growth in the Chars of Bangladesh.
