Bangladesh Agri Minister directs officials to speed up monitoring to recoup flood-hit farmers’ losses
Bangladesh Agriculture Minister Dr Muhammad Abdur Razzaque directed officials to visit flood-affected areas, and monitor and supervise field activities in order to recoup farmers’ losses.
“Affected farmers are facing uncertainty, and effective work is needed to minimise losses after water recedes,” the minister said.
It is to be noted that Bangladesh government has formed 14 committees to speed up monitoring as well as cooperation, including disbursement of fertiliser and seeds.
The committees have also started monitoring the incentive package announced by the government to minimise losses of farmers.
