FAO in Bangladesh

FAO has been working in Bangladesh since 1973. The country’s food and agricultural sectors have transformed since then. Having achieved food security for its large and growing population, Bangladesh – with one of the fastest growing economies in the world – is increasingly shifting its focus towards nutrition security and even 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
