In Bangladesh, the Knowledge Transfer journey began in 2020, with the aim of creating opportunities for smallholder farmers and kickstarting the development of a more competitive and vibrant agri-input market. East-West Seed Knowledge Transfer Bangladesh presently implements the Smart Farming, Healthy Food project, funded by RVO, in partnership with Solidaridad Network Asia, Department of Agricultural Extension, and AgroTec. Our target is to reach 25,000 farmers, of which 65% are women, focusing on the three coastal belt districts of Bangladesh: Noakhali, Patuakhali, and Bhola. In addition to that, we have a memorandum of understanding on action research with Patuakhali Science and Technology University. To broaden our outreach and improve the livelihoods of more smallholder farmers, our team in Bangladesh is keen to develop partnerships with like-minded organisations such as INGOs, tech-based agri-startups, and academia.
