Since launching our work in Bangladesh in the 1980s, Winrock’s primary focus has been on strengthening the country’s critical agriculture sector. Activities have included providing instruction and technical expertise to help Bangladeshi farmers and fishers increase their production and develop and serve markets for shrimp and maize and other promising homegrown products. In recent years, our efforts have included augmenting climate change resiliency through collaborations with communities to manage critical wetlands and other agricultural land that Bangladeshis rely on for their livelihoods. A cross-cutting theme through all of our projects has been promoting the role of women through education and leadership development.
