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
