A dynamically evolving country
Bangladesh, with its population of over 160 million people, is evolving dynamically: the economy has been growing for more than a decade, population growth has fallen and important development goals such as poverty alleviation and child mortality have been achieved. Fifty years after Bangladesh became a nation, it is on its way to becoming a “middle-income country”. Still, major challenges remain. Bangladesh is one of the countries in the world hardest hit by climate change: floods and soil loss are on the rise. Cities are growing rapidly, there is not enough energy, and effective transport systems are lacking. Bangladesh therefore remains an important partner country for German development cooperation. KfW is helping the country to develop and expand renewable energy sources and energy efficiency, fight climate change, promote environmentally friendly urban development, promote good governance and help Rohingya refugees.
