Despite progress on poverty reduction at a global level, hundreds of millions of people remain trapped in extreme and chronic poverty. The CPRC and other researchers, policymakers, practitioners and activists met in Bangladesh recently to attempt to raise awareness of the need to prioritise the poorest; identify policies, practices and tools to support them; and examine how they can get their voices heard in the public arena. The debates of the meeting are summarised in this research summary.
