A review of social safety-net programmes to make them more responsive to the needs of child labour in Bangladesh

This report reviews the existing social safety-net programmes of Bangladesh to find out how the child labour issue has been addressed (directly or indirectly) through the social safety-net programmes and suggests possible ways to fill the gaps in this regard.

The objective of this study is to explore ways by which to make social safety-net programmes more responsive to the needs of child labourers and/or children vulnerable to child labour. In addition, different development partners and local NGOs have been implementing a number of programmes and projects in various parts of Bangladesh to eliminate child labour.
