In the study the family size of the respondents revealed that medium family domination in char area is an indication of the consciousness of the poor people about population problem. Literacy level of the selected respondents was more or less satisfactory compared to the present literacy situation of Bangladesh. Monga striken people in terms of less consumption were higher in char and rural areas compared to urban area. Lack of cultivable land, natural calamities, non-availability of working facilities at non-agricultural sector etc. were opined by the researcher as their causes of monga. On the other hand beef fattening, petty business etc. were opined as the mitigating activities of monga undertaken by NGOs. Old-age allowance, Hundred-days job scheme and Vulnerable Group Development (VGD) programme were observed as monga mitigating activities undertaken by GOs in the study area. The higher performance of NGOs was due to their better identification, selection and supervision strategy with perfect information. Drawbacks like, corruption, lack of adequate financial support, etc., might be responsible for the poor performance of GO mitigating activities of monga in the study area.
