The World's Story is Yours to Tell

Please give priorities for Agriculture, ‘Human population control’, Climate Change and Rural Development to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Because of the present economic system, capitalists are becoming more capitalist and poor becoming poorest. National revenue is growing cause of the earning of the richest and capitalist but approximately 82 percent of the country's population lived in rural areas, virtually all of them making their living exclusively or substantially from agriculture. Poverty in Bangladesh is primarily a ’rural phenomenon’, with 53 percent of its rural population classified as poor, comprising about 85 percent of the country’s poor.

 

Without developing the agriculture, it is quite impossible to develop the country. While the country’s population is growing at the rate of 1.6 percent per year, demographic pressures and increased urbanization have caused cultivated area to decline at a rate of 1 percent per year. Population’s high birth rate is increasing the levels of poverty in Bangladesh. For nearly 45 percent of the rural population, who are already landless or functionally landless (owning less than 0.05 acre of land), and a majority of the new labor force every year, a declining land base and a small urban employment means that employment in the rural non-farm sector presents the best chance to escape poverty.

 

So please give priorities for Agriculture, ‘Human population control’, Climate Change and Rural Development to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
