Abstract


Achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is an on-going process, and its advancement pace is dependent on many factors which are continuously being studied. This paper reviews and explores such factors in the context of the socioeconomic situation in rural Bangladesh, focusing particularly on elements that enable rural self-reliance toward sustainable development – i.e. education, health services, nutritional security, agricultural productivity, and technological competence. In addition, initiatives that may improve SDG outcomes towards rural socioeconomic improvement are proposed.
