Roadmap for producing the 2011 CIP and NFP PoA Monitoring Report

Technical Report

The National Food Policy (NFP) endorsed by the Food Planning and Monitoring Committee (FPMC) and thereafter approved by the Cabinet in August 2006, provides strategic guidance on the way to address the key challenges facing Bangladesh in achieving food security in all its dimensions, including food supply and availability, physical, social and economic access to food, as well as nutrition/utilization of food, as embedded in its three core objectives:

 NFP Objective 1: Adequate and stable supply of safe and nutritious food
 NFP Objective 2: Increased purchasing power and access to food of the people
 NFP Objective 3: Adequate nutrition for all individuals, especially women and children

The NFP Plan of Action (PoA) translates the provisions of the NFP towards achieving its three core objectives into 26 strategic areas of intervention, priority actions to be undertaken in the short term, medium term and long term over the period 2008-2015, identifies responsible actors (government and non-government) and suggests a set of policy targets and indicators for monitoring progress. The document also provides a set of guidelines regarding inter-ministerial coordination, sectoral planning and budgeting, with a view to promoting implementation effectiveness. It also gives an outline of the strategy for monitoring of progress.

The Bangladesh Country Investment Plan (CIP) is a five-year (2011-2015) comprehensive plan that aims to ensure sustainable food security. It is a country-led planning, fund mobilization and alignment tool. It supports increased, effective public investment to increase and diversify food availability in a sustainable manner and improve access to food and nutrition security. Its interventions also aim to mobilize investment by smallholders and other private sector food security actors.
