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
