According to the OECD/DAC's Special Review of South Korea's development co-operation in 2008, South Korea was advised to continue to make progress on aligning its aid with partner countries' national systems and more importantly, South Korea puts limited emphasis on cross-cutting issues, such as insignificant funding on gender.
As gender equality perspectives have not been yet fully integrated into South Korea's Official Development Assistance(ODA), further studies are required to overview comprehensive gender analysis in a given partner country's political, economic, and social situation as well as the partner government's development plans.
While Bangladesh has been one of the top recipients of South Korea's ODA over the past decade, there have been a lack of single, integrated country analysis from a gender perspective for partner countries. Therefore, this study conducts gender analysis and field interviews on various sectors of Bangladesh aligned with the Millennium Development Goals(MDGs). The results will allow for producing gender equality and poverty reduction strategies for the partner country, in addition to effectively build a Country Partnership Strategy(CPS) for the South Korean government.
The findings are robust to the policy recommendations on the issues of education, human resources development, public health, prevention of violence against women, climate change and the environment. In line with policy recommendations, attributable inputs are significantly related to South Korea's successful development achievements in the past.
