Bangladesh Country Climate and Development Report October 2022


Chapter 3 of the report deals more specifically with the strategy for building resilience in the agricultural sector.

Key messages of this chapter are as follows:

  • While the agricultural share of GDP is declining, it remains a powerful driver of inclusive growth and poverty reduction.

  • Diversifying agricultural production would increase resilience to climate change and promote growth while continuing to contribute to poverty reduction.

  • Realizing the growth potential of the agriculture, livestock, and fisheries sector hinges upon increased commercialization and large-scale adoption of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practices.

  • A combination of interventions to diversify crops and scale up climate-Smart agriculture is advised in the report.

  • In particular, enabling women to adopt new agricultural practices will provide additional benefits across all these strategies.
