Poverty Reduction Challenge in Bangladesh is an interdisciplinary action research project led by Dr. Sam Ro of JI-CFE. In this project, Dr. Sam Ro will lead a group of 7-10 students to visit Bangladesh for a week in January 2019 to identify specific problems in rural areas in Bangladesh and design and implement innovative solutions for the social issue (poverty reduction) using SJTU’s resources.
During the field trip, participating students will visit rural villages and households that have working relationship with our partners to observe current efforts for poverty reduction. After thist, they will make reports of what they have observed and make proposals for improving current situation. Based on the proposal, actual designing of the solutions will be carried out in the second phase of the project.
Phase I aims at building capacity, networking with partners in Bangladesh as well as in SJTU, and identifying problems in Bangladesh through field visits.
