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 food exports.

The Country Programming Framework (CPF) 2022-2026 sets out FAO’s strategic priorities, key areas of technical cooperation, and medium-term country-level programming activities.

There are four priority areas:
    • Productive, diversified and knowledge-based agri-economic growth
    • Healthy, safe, and nutritious food:
    • Climate resilience and nature-based, low-carbon sustainable development
    • Gender equality and youth development
