WFP’s work in Bangladesh started in 1974 in the early days after independence when it supported the Government and people of Bangladesh to cope with the impact of natural disasters like cyclones and floods. Since then, WFP has continued to support the Government as it works to reach its development objectives and to respond to the Rohingya refugee crisis. The Country Brief provides a monthly snapshot of the operating context in Bangladesh; together with programmatic updates and challenges; monitoring data; and the overall country strategy.
