A national seminar on “Food Security and Ecosystem Management in Covid-19” has been held at International University of Business Agriculture and Technology (IUBAT).

IUBAT Institute of SDG Studies (IISS) and RCE Greater Dhaka organized the national seminar on November 19.

Zuena Aziz, principal coordinator (SDGs) of Prime Minister’s Office, participated in the seminar as chief guest, Dr Kristofer Johnson, team leader of Natural Resource Management, Food & Agricultural Organization (FAO), as special guest and Dr Abdhesh Kumar Gangwar, convener, Asia-Pacific RCEs Coordinating Committee, as guest of honour.

Prof Dr Abdur Rab, vice-chancellor of IUBAT presided over the virtual program.

The seminar was welcomed by Prof Selina Nargis, IUBAT treasurer and chairperson of RCE Greater Dhaka and Prof Dr M Ataur Rahman, coordinator, RCE Greater Dhaka and director, IISS, delivered the keynote speech.

During the seminar, guests discussed in detail the management of food security during the pandemic and said that Bangladesh should be aware of the food and nutrition security in post-pandemic. 

To sustain the success in agriculture, action plans need to be taken to meet the food and nutrition needs of the growing population, including implementing the challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. This is especially true in the post-Covid-19 period. 

In sustainable agriculture, there is a need to strengthen coordination between farming and other social, economic, and environmental aspects. Sustainable agriculture needs to be planned and implemented in such a way that it is resource-efficient, socially conducive, commercially competitive, and environmentally friendly.
