The paper provides an important scientific assessment of food security situation in Bangladesh focussing on the production of cereals. It estimates indicate that current yields in Bangladesh are not sufficient to meet future food demand due to a combination of expected cropland area reduction and expected grain demand increases. As a result, under various land use change scenarios, SSRs of all cerealswill decrease substantially in 2030 and 2050. Click here for more information.
