IFPRI brings to this work exceptional capacity and over three decades of experience conducting research in Bangladesh. In recent years, IFPRI has undertaken rigorous evaluations using RCTs of several large nutrition-related programs in Bangladesh, including Alive and Thrive, the World Food Programme’s TMRI, and DFID’s Programme to Accelerate Improved Nutrition for the Extreme Poor in Bangladesh. In collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, and with funding from the GOB and USAID, IFPRI designed an RCT evaluating the ANGeL pilot project that the Ministry will use as an evidence base to design and implement a national program. Through USAID-funded PRSSP, IFPRI provides demand-driven evidence-based research support for food and agricultural policy in Bangladesh and established the Agricultural Policy Support Unit of the Ministry of Agriculture. Under PRSSP, IFPRI collected the most comprehensive and nationally-representative rural BIHS, including data on the WEAI.
