Disability, poverty and poverty dynamics: a preliminary analysis of panel data, policies and politics in Bangladesh

What difference does disability makes to poverty dynamics? Currently there is little evidence about this relationship, however it certainly has serious implications, especially on the conditions and processes that influence the outcomes experienced by households which include persons with disabilities. This Bangladesh-based pilot project aims to provide policy makers at national and global levels with an initial idea of what can be learnt about the relationship between disability and poverty dynamics, and how that modifies the picture of the relationship held by policy makers and practitioners.
