Safer Poultry for Better Nutrition

In an effort to changing the hygiene maintenance and keeping proper sanitary measures in poultry production practices, FAO and Government of Bangladesh carried out a project in southern delta region with USAID fund, contributing to ‘Improving Food Security of Women and Children by Enhancing Backyard and Small-scale poultry Production’. Under the project, the beneficiary farmers (small-scale poultry farmers) were provided with better poultry sheds, vaccinations and feeds, and trainings – resulting in better eggs and meat production ensuring food and nutrition security over time.
