Abstract
Safety net programmes have proved to be a useful instrument to tackle hunger and malnutrition in Bangladesh. However, insufficient co-ordination between the manifold initiatives causes inefficiencies and limits coverage of poor households suffering from hunger. The Government should adopt a policy to streamline public safety net programmes and encourage Development Partners to align their interventions.
