Bangladesh has made huge strides in food and agriculture since it joined FAO in 1973, emerging from famine in its early years of independence to achieve food security for its large and growing population. Today, the country is increasingly turning its attention to nutrition and food exports.

The Country Programming Framework 2019-2020 for Bangladesh sets out FAO’s strategic priorities, key areas of technical cooperation, and medium-term country-level programming activities.

There are three priority areas:
      1. Healthy, safe, and nutritious food
      2. Sustainability of productive ecosystems
      3. Climate change adaptation and mitigation
