A proven model for achieving localized food security and farmers benefit protection
AbstractDespite efforts from government and DPs it has not been possible to ensure a rational return to the farmers on their productive efforts and solving localized food insecurity. In the above light an intervention was designed and implemented in Bangladesh since 1978 and it sustained many changes in its operational mode. Presently, taking a deeper look into the model proves it as an replicable, affordable and sustainable solution for the farmers particularly of the developing countries. The model was able to provide at least 30-50%% price premium to the farmers over the general price trends.
