Fifth Learning Hub Event on “Nutrition and Food Security: A Comprehensive and Adaptive Agricultural Development"
On August 05, 2015 participants from General Economic Division (GED) including other divisions, many national and international development professionals, climate change experts and donors gathered in NEC Conference Room at the Planning Commission premises, Dhaka, Bangladesh to take part in fifth Learning Hub dialogue on ‘Nutrition and Food Security: A Comprehensive and Adaptive Agricultural Development’.
The Learning Hub Events (LHEs) are jointly hosted by the GED Planning Commission; the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) at Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED). The GED-ICCCAD-IIED joint collaboration has already organized four events of this kind between last year and this year on various prevalent themes on climate change issues. In its second year, there will be four half day LHEs which are knowledge sharing events to support the General Economic Division (GED) of the Planning Commission of the Government of Bangladesh in integrating climate change into the upcoming Seventh Five Year Plan (7FYP) (2016-2020). This Five Year Plan is focused on creating a people oriented framework where the basic needs of everyday Bangladeshis can be met. In short, the overall development process is largely dependent on how climate change issues are properly integrated with the national policies of different sectors. Among these agriculture and food security have been given substantial importance.
