BACKGROUND
 

In June 2010 the Government of Bangladesh released the Country Investment Plan to support the implementation of the National Food Policy and its Plan of Action. Specifically, its purpose is to:

  • plan and invest resources that address the three dimensions of food security in a coordinated way;
  • increase the convergence of Government investment and external funding in order to avoid gaps and redundancies;
  • mobilize additional funds, including from external sources such as the L’Aquila Food Security Initiative;
  • monitor, evaluate and – if necessary – remedy investments in agriculture, food security and nutrition.

The Country Investment Plan covers a five-year period, is anchored in the existing national framework and benefits from the Government’s strong political support.

Between December 2010 and March 2011, the Government of Bangladesh reviewed the CIP through a consultative process that involved government agencies, academics, civil society, private sector, NGOs, UN agencies and development partners in order to reflect their views in the Plan and prioritize interventions. The outcome of this consultation is an updated draft CIP that includes a result framework, refined costing and financing requirements.

This draft version was presented during a national forum in Dhaka on 20 March 2011 that was attended by Government officials, development partners and representatives from civil society and the private sector (see news on the event).
