​Pradeep Mitra and Kathryn Steinberger from World Bank visits BIDS

Dr. Pradeep Mitra, Senior Consultant, IEG Human Development and Economic Management Department, World Bank and Ms. Kathryn Steingraber, Evaluation Analyst, World Bank visited the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies to discuss what impacts World Bank interventions in agriculture and rural development were generated, particularly in stimulating rural employment and reducing poverty. BIDS researchers felt that World Bank programs have indeed had a positive impact, especially in energy and infrastructure projects but also pointed out that there are considerable methodological challenges in attributing impact given numerous interventions in many areas, carried out over the last decade. The meeting was chaired by Dr. KAS Murshid in the presence of Dr. Mohammad Yunus, Dr. KA Toufiq and Dr. Nazneen Ahmed.
