    IFPRI-PRSSP Workshop "Evidence-Based Policy Options for Food and Nutrition Security in Bangladesh"

    Location: 

    Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel • Dhaka, Bangladesh

    Background

    Food and nutrition security depends not only on food production and consumption but also on the policies that affect food systems, from farm to table. Since 1988, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has had a strong presence in Bangladesh, conducting research, providing policy support, and strengthening stakeholders’ capacity. This on-the-ground presence has allowed IFPRI to generate evidence-based research results on critical food and nutrition security issues.
