BRAC Research and Evaluation Division and the Copenhagen Consensus Center has jointly undertaken the Bangladesh Priorities project which is working with stakeholders across Bangladesh to find, analyse, rank and disseminate the best solutions for Bangladesh. The main objective of the project is to identify development challenges for Bangladesh, outline the solutions and suggest the smart solutions (based on techniques of cost-benefit analysis) to overcome these challenges. Bangladeshis across the country has been engaged under this project to discover the biggest challenges. Through readers of newspapers, along with rural Bangladeshis, academics, NGOs, politicians, international organisation and businesses, a list of the top solutions for Bangladesh will be collated, while generating a strong interest in the whole project. For each of the identified challenges, the project is engaged with some of the world’s and the region’s top economists to identify the best possible solutions. Once research is complete, various stakeholders across the country will undertake prioritization of solutions informed by costs and benefits. The results of these prioritisations will be shared widely, with the aim of nudging future government and development spending towards the smartest solutions.
