context and principeles of the 4th strategic plan (2019-2024)
Still 21.8% of the population in Bangladesh live below the poverty line, 11.13% of who are extremely poor (Source: Perception Survey, General Economic Division, Planning Commission, 2018). While consistent economic growth is improving living conditions, gaping inequality between the rich and the poor is proving hard to rein in. Moreover, the rights and entitlements of the poor don’t receive due attention – fundamental rights like right to food is still not guaranteed by law. WAVE has set its 4th Strategic Plan on the basis of its analysis of the context of Bangladesh, the 7th Five-Year Plan, Bangladesh’s growth potential in mid-term and long-term, the SDGs, and learning from the implementation of the third strategic plan.
WAVE has been carrying out its diversified interventions under three broad programmatic domains as set out in its
4th strategic plan-
Sustainable Livelihood Domain
Democratic Governance Domain
Social Development & Climate Resilience Domain
