Bangladesh - The Food Security Atlas, December 2004

The Food Security Atlas of Bangladesh has been prepared as the final product of a collaborative effort between the Planning Commission, Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics and the UN World Food Programme.
The aim of this project, titled Mapping and Characterizing Food Insecurity and Vulnerability in Bangladesh, was to contribute to a better understanding of the spatial patterns of food insecurity, poverty and malnutrition in the country. This was achieved by generating food security indices and poverty and malnutrition estimates at the local level, and translating these into user-friendly maps. A compilation of these maps is presented here together with
background information, food security analyses, and a series of supporting thematic maps.
