Linking agriculture with Social Protection in Bangladesh

Oct 2015

This video prepared focusing on ‘Social Protection and Agriculture: breaking the cycle of rural poverty’ – the theme of World Food Day 2015. Preparation of this video is an attempt to demonstrate social protection linked to agriculture - how it can help tackle the vulnerabilities faced by rural households, and play a fundamental role in improving food and nutrition security and reducing rural poverty.

The video illustrates an example on how do social protection programmes work in Bangladesh. Usually they involve transfers to the poorest of cash or food. Sometimes these transfers are offered in return for work, especially where other employment opportunities are unavailable. The work component may involve activities such as land conservation, water resource management or afforestation/reforestation.
