Bangladesh: Country Synthesis Brief
MetadataShow full item record
Bangladesh has taken initiative to address the undernutrition situation by strengthening linkages with agriculture, but rigorous scientific evidence is needed across geographical settings. The Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) research programme consortium aims to enhance the impact of agriculture on maternal and child nutrition in Bangladesh. LANSA activities have included: mapping of stakeholder perceptions of sectoral policies and programmes, primary research, secondary data analysis, policy dialogue, capacity strengthening, research uptake and dissemination. BRAC is the lead institution for LANSA research in Bangladesh, working with the partners, viz. Leverhulme Centre for Integrated Agricultural Research (LCIRAH), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and Institute of Development Studies (IDS). In addition, there were research collaborations with Universities of Queensland, Heidelberg and Sydney in partnership with local universities in Bangladesh.
