Distribution of Districts Based on Scores in Food and Cash Assistance During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Distribution of districts based on their scores in food and cash distribution during COVID-19 pandemic (number of districts)
More than half of the districts got moderate scores while many a district got low scores in responding to the marginalised people with food and cash assistance: The scorecard (Figure 2) on the food and cash distribution during the COVID-19 pandemic suggests that no district got very low or very high scores. However, more than half of the districts (33) got moderate score while only three districts got high scores. This is to mention that around half of the districts (28) got low scores (21-40% scores). The districts which got the high scores are Jhalokathi (66.33%), Barishal (65.67%) and Brahmanbaria (65.67%). On the other hand, the five low scored districts are Norail (20.00%), Rangpur (20.42%), Nilphamari (22.00%), Feni (25.56%) and Bogura (25.83%) (See the details in Annex 1)

2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food.
If done right, agriculture, forestry and fisheries can provide nutritious food for all and generate decent incomes, while supporting people-centred rural development and protecting the environment.
Right now, our soils, freshwater, oceans, forests and biodiversity are being rapidly degraded. Climate change is putting even more pressure on the resources we depend on, increasing risks associated with disasters such as droughts and floods. Many rural women and men can no longer make ends meet on their land, forcing them to migrate to cities in search of opportunities.
A profound change of the global food and agriculture system is needed if we are to nourish today’s 815 million hungry and the additional 2 billion people expected by 2050.
The food and agriculture sector offers key solutions for development, and is central for hunger and poverty eradication.
