Bangladesh’s agricultural sector faces a number of challenges, including declining farmland use intensity, shrinking arable land, competing freshwater usage, and rapid urbanization. These challenges are compounded by the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and salinity.

Despite these challenges, Bangladesh’s agricultural sector also has a number of opportunities, including a growing population with increasing demand for food, a young, educated workforce, and a favorable business environment.

Dutch technology and innovation can play a significant role in helping Bangladesh address the challenges it faces in its agricultural sector.
