National Policy Documents Cite LANSA Products in Bangladesh

Every year Bangladesh produces a Monitoring Report of its National Food Policy Plan of Action and Country Investment Plan for Agriculture, Food Security and Nutrition. For the last 3 years (2015, 2016, 2017) this document has made direct reference to LANSA research on determinants of child undernutrition and on the importance of agriculture in addressing undernutrition. The report to monitor the Country Investment Plan (CIP 2011) is developed by the Ministry of Food’s Food Planning and Monitoring Unit (FPMU) and 17 partner ministries with technical assistance from Meeting the Undernutrition Challenge (MUCH) Programme being implemented by FAO with support from USAID and EU. FAO in Bangladesh focuses on supporting policy development on food and nutrition security with a focus on nutrition sensitive food systems and has become a key champion for LANSA research.
