|dc.description.abstract||2021 was a year of profound significance for us as a nation, when we celebrated 50 years of Bangladesh. But celebration often provokes reflection. Our Golden Jubilee amidst the most consequential pandemic of the last 100 years and the climate that is changing faster than ever, compel us to critically reflect on our achievements, vulnerabilities and ways forward. For the BRAC Institute of Governance and Development (BIGD), it is a moment to reflect on our relevance to the future of Bangladesh.
The BIGD Reflections 2021 Report looks back at our priorities and achievements over the past year. In our COVID-19 recovery research strategy, education is going to be a central theme, trying to find not only the ways of repairing damages but also how to make sure that education makes our children more resilient to future shocks, be it economic, technological or natural.||
