In response to Bangladesh’s Country Investment Plan for agriculture, food security, and nutrition, the USAID-funded Policy Research and Strategy Support Program (PRSSP) has been providing demand-driven food- and agricultural-policy research since 2010, focusing on seven key areas:
- Agricultural growth and climate change
- Fishery development and livestock sectors
- Marketing and regional and global trade
- Social safety nets
The PRSSP generates information on critical issues, strengthens analytical capacity within the country, and stimulates policy dialogue. Its main objectives are to enhance the efficiency of food production and marketing, accelerate income growth of the poor, and improve nutrition for vulnerable groups.
