Bangladesh: Protecting and promoting food and nutrition security

This video provides an overview of an innovative and collaborative food and nutrition security project being implemented in Barisal division along the southern coastal belt of Bangladesh. WFP, UNICEF and FAO have teamed up with the Government to implement a Spanish-funded project that addresses the availability, access and utlisation of nutritious foods. The region has alarming rates of undernutrition and is frequently struck by natural disasters, particularly cyclones and salt water intrusion exacerbated by climate change.
