Dinajpur outcome 3

Educational institutions and health facilities in vulnerable geographic areas in Dinajpur have been mapped and institutions to work with for improving knowledge and demand for the consumption of safe, local, diverse, nutritious, and agroecologically produced food have been identified. With its new concept of nutrition clubs promoting nutrition awareness among communities and engaging youth volunteers to spread nutrition messages, the Bangladesh Institute of ICT in Development (BIID) might be an ideal partner for NICE. Discussions to set up such a partnership are currently undertaken and NICE is also introduced to the managers of selected education/health institutions as informative social behavior change messages are soon developed based on formative research for what a Request for Proposals has been shared locally in Bangladesh.
