APARAJEO is working for establishing land rights to the landless people in Southwest Bangladesh. At present, total of 150,214.64 acres of khasland lies in the southwest region. And over one million landless people exist in the targeted areas. At the end of the project, 44,000 landless peoples of Satkhira and Khulna district will have increased access and
control over the public resources and services (including khasland and water bodies), and be upgraded from extreme poverty line improving livelihoods. The main purpose of the baseline survey is to capture and document the benchmark, present data and status of different indicators/aspects of landless people and landlessness in the 7 upazillas of Satkhira and Khulna. The data and status will be used by the project holder of APARAJEO for the purpose of monitoring the progress during the implementation process, and mainly in the end of project evaluation both by the internal and external evaluators.
