Abstract

This report focuses on the dynamics of resilience amongst the extreme poor in Bangladesh. It argues that resilience is a more appropriate focus of analysis than graduation in trying to understand extreme poor people's attempts to improve their livelihoods and wellbeing. It offers a conceptual framework to understand resilience and then draws on primary empirical data to test the framework. The report also offers a set of reflections on the usefulness for policy of the concept of resilience and also attempts to identify potential indicators.
