Bangladesh, 27 November 2012 Borosarotia Soydabad, Uz: Sadar, district. Sirajganj.  Bangladesh is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. Increased frequency of natural disasters, such as cyclones, floods and drought, is likely to undermine poverty reduction efforts. Coping strategies adopted by the poor such as reducing food intake, withdrawing children from school and selling productive assets increase the vulnerability of low-income households and worsen people’s prospects for escaping the poverty cycle. Despite these numerous challenges, WFP is able to draw on 39 years of operations in the country to continue supporting the Government’s Poverty Reduction Strategy. WFP works in close cooperation with the Government and local as well as international NGOs to improve the food security, nutritional well-being and livelihoods of the ultra-poor. WFP also supports communities vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, with a focus on building community and household preparedness and resilience through innovative food and cash for work and training programmes.The aim of WFP’s Nutrition Strategy in Bangladesh is to support the government in breaking the intergenerational cycle of under nutrition by giving priority to a child’s first 1000 days of life. WFP is actively engaged in the initiatives Renewed Efforts Against Child Hunger and Under nutrition (REACH) and Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) which provide the principal coordination mechanisms.To promote the nutritional status of undernourished children under two, pregnant and nursing women and adolescent girls WFP provides specialized nutritious foods. These distributions are complemented by behavior change communication aimed at improving nutrition and hygiene practices. These sessions are attended by young women and mothers, other caretakers of undernourished children as well as a wider audience of community members.Nursing mothers and pregnant women are trained in a community nutrition and health education project - part of WFP’s Improving Maternal and Child Nutrition (IMCN) programme, funded by the EU. Women learn hygiene, breastfeeding, nutrition practices and child care as well as better techniques for growing vegetables. They receive fortified foods and have their own, and their babies’ nutritional condition monitored by government-run community clinics.   Under WFP guidance the FSUP Nutrition Program in Serajganj District is implemented by National Development Program (NDP), Technical Assistance is gngiven by Action Contre La Faim Internationale (ACF International).
