High quality, timely evidence is imperative for identifying and filling knowledge gaps. In early October, IFPRI's Policy Research and Strategy Support Program (PRSSP) is organizing a workshop entitled, "Eliminating Hunger and Malnutrition: Are Sustainable Solutions in Sight?" The workshop will share research-based evidence, which are directly related to 4 of the SDGs – eliminate poverty, hunger, promote good health and well-being, and ensure gender equality.
This forum will serve as an interface between experts from government, civil society, academia, research institutes, and development partners who will discuss and debate critical poverty, hunger, and malnutrition issues that Bangladesh faces. Technical presentations will center on achieving sustainability in food production, consumption, and nutrition, and building resilience to climate and other shocks, with the aim of identifying knowledge gaps and opportunities for accelerating progress to end hunger and malnutrition in Bangladesh.
The event has attracted high-level participation. The Honorable Minister of Food Advocate Md. Qamrul Islam has kindly consented to be the Chief Guest for the occasion. Special guests include Honourable State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Ms. Meher Afroze Chumki, IFPRI'S Director General Dr. Shenggen Fan, and USAID Mission Director Ms. Janina Jaruzelski.
