Starting from 1978/79, WFP has been involved in the publication of FGD

The present form of publication is designed based on the review undertaken by WFP in 1999/2000

This publication provides an excellent database on food situation in Bangladesh and is often used as a reference for various purposes by government agencies and donors

Bangladesh Food Situation Report

  • Published quarterly (infrequently)

  • Circulated among various government agencies and and development partners

  • It contains a narrative description of the main issues concerning food security situation in Bangladesh with supporting data, graphics and tables

  • It is user friendly but lacks specific details

Bangladesh Food Situation Report

Summarises overall situation along with government strategy

Supported by necessary data presented in a summarised form

Serve excellent purpose with analysis of the overall food situation (Production, Food aid imports, market situation, overall PFDS operations and nutrition) of Bangladesh and uses data from the FGD

Perhaps we need !!!!

FGD + FSR in long and short form

In an initial meeting with the Ministry of Food, it was agreed that all parties would actively participate in the review process

Comments received so far suggest:

Broadening the scope of the publication for commodities other than wheat and rice

Inclusion of analysis of the situation in addition to supporting data

Less thick

Any other COMMENTS ???

WFP would like to initiate the review of FGD with the Ministry of food
