Policy Data Snapshot: Bangladesh

Date Published: 
June 8, 2018

This brief features selected data on Bangladesh most relevant to USAID/Bangladesh's Feed the Future work. According to the World Bank's Enabling the Business of Agriculture Index, Bangladesh performs relatively well compared to the average across Feed the Future countries in facilitating access to fertilizer, financial services, and markets. Areas with the greatest room for improvement include access to seed, machinery, transport services, and water management. Overall, scores highlight burdensome import regulations, poor quality control systems and consumer protections, and a deficient water management regime.
This snapshot was produced by the Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security project, a global support mechanism for Missions and Washington-based USAID offices to address policies as well as legal, institutional, and regulatory factors that affect food security.
