Introduction…

Bangladesh is predominantly a rural country where over 80 per cent of the Nations 128 million people live in rural areas and mostly engaged in agriculture. While 40 percent of Asian population is urban, only about one-fifth of Bangladesh’s population is urban and the rate of growth of urban population has been fairly low (GOB 1991). The nation has had two and half decades of developmental efforts to avert poverty and to achieve economic development and social change. Despite large inflow of capital and foreign aid to augment meager domestic resources, the planned efforts for development have not been able to free the country from its low economic growth trap. The average per capita income is still low by the World standards (US$470) and over half of the country’s population lives below poverty level. Population explosion, resource scarcity, severe environmental constraints, and lack of technology are some factors responsible for such slow rates of economic growth and increasing poverty. While the government monitors and promotes urbanization and spatial development via allocation of resources, slow rate of urbanization and wide spatial inequalities are well documented in the country. The existing studies on urbanization in Bangladesh have largely focused on urban population dynamics, urban housing, health and sanitation, the relevancy of urbanization and spatial development theories in such conditions is largely undocumented.

As a result the price of important goods have gone high & majority population are slowly losing their purchase capacity as their earnings have not been enhanced neither employment situation have been improved. The vast rural areas of Bangladesh do not generate sufficient employment’s three exists a constant battle to survive, migration from rural to urban areas are increasing. But the new economic fields also do not answer to the constant problem or meet the survival needs.

Children under 15 comprise 40% of Bangladesh population of 122 million and among them 16% are less than 5 years. About 5.4 million children
