The Nodi O Jibon (‘River and Life’) project operated in the northern char area of Bangladesh from April 2006 to March 2011. This is the final evaluation paper.

The evaluation concluded that about 2,000 households had achieved significant and sustainable improvement in household livelihood, with 10,000 households receiving some direct benefits and about 20,000 some indirect benefits (health services, agricultural technologies etc.) Overall the project has produced significant results with considerable capacity built among char women and some sustainable livelihood and service improvements.

There was a need for a clearer strategy on how to sustain service improvements, the most appropriate form of community organisation, and how to manage and monitor Graduation.
