Industrial sub-sectors are driving growth in emerging markets. Bangladesh like many other developing countries and emerging economies in the world, have observed rapid growth in industrial sub-sectors. Ready Made Garments (RMG), furniture, plastics, light engineering, electrical and electronics industries are thriving. Development partners are increasingly focusing on these sub-sectors as a means to create employment for skilled workers.
We have extensive experience on research, project management and evaluation on value added industrial products (furniture, jute diversified products, leather goods, plastics), food processing, renewable energy and waste recycling subsectors. We have served clients to design and manage interventions in industrial subsectors in Bangladesh, Yemen, and Nigeria. We are also working on service industries that include financial markets and technical and vocation education and training.
CROSS CUTTING ISSUES
Climate Risk Mitigation
Climate risk mitigation refers to climate-sensitive decision making. The approach promotes sustainable development by reducing the vulnerability associated with climate risk by minimizing negative outcomes for communities in fields such as agriculture and health. Apart from mitigating adverse effects from climate risks, it also helps to maximize opportunities in climate-sensitive economic issues such as maximizing crop productivity by utilizing seasonal forecasts by farmers.
Gender & Equality
Gender & Equality mostly focuses on the Women’s Right and Economic Development. According to UNICEF, it seeks to ensure that the women and men, boy and girls enjoy the same rights, resources, opportunities and protection but does not require them to be treated exactly alike.
The disadvantaged are typically men and women from lower-income backgrounds with reduced capability suffering from social exclusion and have limited access to resources and economic opportunities. They are often landless or marginal farmers operating on the most unproductive land.
