What is the approximate size of your Place, in square kilometers? (New question, not required)


What is the estimated population (current 2020) in your Place?


Challenges: Describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that your food system faces.

Farmers in Bangladesh  consider that the actual drought in crop production is due to the use of formal pesticides and formalin due to the invasion of excess pests and diseases. The use of extra antibiotics and poor quality of feed and medicine in the management of animal resources is affecting entrepreneur and consumer polygamy levels. Due to the depletion of groundwater, the agricultural land of the lower regions falls for 5-6 months of the year due to the high areas and wildlife. Climate change events such as rising temperatures, droughts and floods, submerged water tables, slow availability and alternatives to adoption, all increase food demand by 70% while not harming agriculture. Small farmers consider a 80 % increase in food globally, which is a problem that affects everyone. There are many factors in the poor and the economy in agriculture - holding fragmented land, lack of access to inputs, consulting and very high market volatility. The effects of climate change events and the lack of access to high-yielding technologies are two of the most important factors. The list of farmer suicides in 2011 is high. The ultimate change is the inability to access high-yield solutions and systemic degradation across Silesia, with 75% of farmers wanting to quit agricultural work. Remain Through the use of advanced research and digital information technology in the field of agriculture, the VDCs end the poverty of the marginalized, poor, privileged peasants in Rangpur district, tackling climate change, providing hunger and poverty free living, providing proper education. Women are working relentlessly to increase the production of safe and nutritious agricultural products through empowerment, health care. In the meanwhile, the Upazila Chairman has declared Mithapukur Upazila as a safe food-producing upazila. Purchase of agricultural products produced directly from the farmer. Provide necessary assistance and take steps to tackle climate issues. To assist in procurement of nutrient tax by exporting modern equipment used for agricultural work to the farmer at very low cost and exporting the agricultural products produced abroad. Innovation of drought and flood tolerant varieties by setting up agricultural laboratories in each upazila. Organic fertilizer production to enhance soil quality and enhance energy. Establishment of Gavi tube wells. Expansion of cultivation technology in a flooded manner in a flooded area. Establish hatcheries for fisheries, poultry, artificial breeding centers and agricultural seed laboratories for cows, goats and sheep to increase nutrient production. Creating Farmers data base through mobile SMS, problem solving, consulting and taking necessary steps There will be huge stir.Accepting a given location education for safety or child message viewers is effective অংশ Awareness is created as part of a regular program of electricity in the water stream and at the school-level law school level.

Address the Challenges: Describe how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.

Village and Post: Mainpur Kodotla, Upazila: Mathapukur, District: Rangpur Project Awareness, access to tests and acquiring third gender, Sattalghu (Sattal female) with Bard Poltestridant Descriptor. Changes to the charge included in the project include: Dolce-Brodie chicken depictions, in particular the Dells' parting site and partitions with water, his wife has been published, broody chickens have been reported, and umbrella development has been found. Straw and use should be taught to help raise the mold and the side Advanced reproductive cycle, which will help to increase the health status of poultry Broody - ideal requirements for chicks to eat, the food security for the production of safe poultry SMS gateway system for the development of food security and good practices, There should be 33 sms about law protection laws and consumer rights laws. These children should be run by Poultry Streets, Live Bardators (LBMs), Animal Husbandry Department (DLS) officers, media correspondents and mobile messaging organizations (SMS) for identification and identification. . Project 300,000 Beneficiaries Are these photo-regular SMSs well applied to protect the profession of the VDC Research Center's top operators and hoses? Communicate with female poultry breeders at SMS Gateway, help by working at the poultry rate, use annual and humane input, do not laugh or use antibiotics, for inappropriate time-consuming and maintained poultry location. Outcomes of sms gateways for hydraulic and standalone reinforcement system changes and contributions to the sable poultry trader. For the maintained and maintained poultry position during unreasonable periods. Outcomes of sms gateways for hydraulic and standalone reinforcement system changes and contributions to the sable poultry trader.

High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.

Poultry rearing is very poor at the natural level, and the recognition of some of the breeders is less than 80% of rural poultry farming. Dishi Tihuri is a hen-chicken, death, poultry that once raised the structure of poultry and poultry in the mid-1970s. Incomplete poultry rapists go despite this involvement One question and concern for poultry on the unfinished question is the journey to the public? Experts, however, have been involved in poultry farming for some time. Women have some unfortunate management issues such as crema philosophy review, regular time and children's water, water, lighting, cleaning, and vaccinations, which are important for encouraging the celebration of hens-chickens. But the norm is that the result of the election of women of this part as part of the policy rights at all levels and gender status of the states involved in climate is the Buddhist part of Ekendra and the economic economy of the movement, Social and cultural rights are a lost place. The feminine exploitation of Culbert and Social Karen continues to lose its sovereignty and let the girls remain at home.

Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?

Due to the technology and training provided by implementing activities, many farmers, youth and young women have achieved great success in combating climate change by creating farms and forests.

Increasing the vitality of the land and the production of crops by the use of organic fertilizers instead of using chemical fertilizers. Increase in profitability in agriculture through innovation of new and climate-tolerant varieties.

Technical Impact:

 Due to the use of digital information technology, the agricultural sector has become profitable for those who have decided to quit agriculture work and higher educated young women will also concentrate on agriculture. The unemployment rate will be absolutely reduced. Production of energy and electricity by creating biogas plants through waste. We research and advise farmers on the application of minimal chemical fertilizers, which do not emit nitrous from the soil. As suggested by the roots of the tree, the plants are stimulated with water-soluble fertilizers, consequently preventing harmful chemicals and aquifers from the soil. The impact on water and soil health will be noticeable if a few million farmers accept our view. Advanced research and use of digital information technology in agriculture, training of modern farming and group training of 4 members in each region to increase production. Establish hatcheries and entrepreneurs for all birds including fisheries, quail, poultry. Sanctuary for fisheries and birds. Establishment of artificial breeding centers, laboratories and improved breeds of cattle, goats and sheep. Distribution of necessary equipment and modern equipment.

Economic Impact:

In our view, small farmers have the potential to change how food is impacted, however, the complex food systems in which these potential small farmers live depend on reciprocal, cooperative relationships with other partners. Until now, banks and financial institutions in Bangladesh were wary of lending to small farmers due to high risk. Small farmers are not given loans. With the ability of small farmers to earn a lot from farming, we will be able to prove that small farmers are bankable, the idea of refreshing banks and restoring justice to the way small and marginal farmers exercise their rights in banking and financial services. Until now, small farmers have received the shortest voice in a very fragmented market system. To change our vision is to put the collective power in the hands of the community. Launching agricultural loan for very easy terms and interests.

Dietary Impact:

The continuous production cycle and volume ensures that farmers who sell fresh produce and collect fresh produce will see the value of working with small farmers in a way that is profitable without being exploitative. Small farmers see the same problem in the way policies are designed and implemented. There are many plans in the government paper that, to do this specifically for the lives of farmers, positive interventions like ours can reshape the progress of these policies and / or accelerate progress. For example, the National Horticulture Board subsidizes the purchase of commercial greenhouses that are large, expensive and not suitable for small farmers. By showing the potential of our impact, we will be able to pursue good intentions behind policies in the economy and in realistic practice. In the end, we will rely on other companies that work with farmers and agronomists to provide our vision. It leads to the coordination, learning and empowerment of many organizations which serve the common goal of welfare of farmers and sustainable food system in Bangladesh. Our approach to protected cultivation through greenhouses has been the cornerstone of technologies that have been around for decades and whose impact has been proven around the world. We have created this technology to connect a modular, cheaper, and more unique culture with the geographical and economic context of small farmers in Bangladesh. Our designs are constantly evolving to follow this, and we hope to expand the source of our technology in the future. Deep technology and machine learning are already present on large farms, providing timely information and greater control to farmers. This will expand our search for small farmers to make farmers more productive and profitable.

Cultural Impact:

Overall, the definitive impact that has had us on our approach is the return to social and cultural status in agriculture. At the macro level, small farmers are becoming invisible actors of the social fabric, whose contributions are not only visible, but also targeted for the pressures of the economy. At the grassroots level, farmers' stigma as a way of living for rural children and adolescents is steadily increasing, the existence of food systems and the combined knowledge of farmers and the systems that came before them .The vulnerability of cultivating timber is reduced. Establishment of purchase or sale of agricultural products produced directly from the farmer, provide training and raise awareness in the fight against physical abuse.

Policy: The ecological agriculture practice is environment friendly, inimically viable and culturally enriched. There are new policy developed by Bangladesh on Organic agriculture. Therefore the practical experience and practice of ecological agriculture should  contribute in natoinal agriculture policy. 

Environment: Farmers practice in environmental agriculture without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Environmental farming practices are environmentally friendly. Dealing with climate change by creating a fruit garden. Organic fertilizer production through waste. Proper waste management. Now other stakeholders are becoming interested in what may be an environmentally friendly and safe diet for everyone in the future.

The list of everyday foods of the people of Bangladesh will consist of modern, savory dishes made with fish, meat, milk, eggs, mashrooms, fresh vegetables and fruits. These agricultural products reach the hands of the people. Each family will have a nutrition garden. There will be no poverty in the technical use of the skilled national and international networks will be integrated with the spread of their innovation and technology. People are slaves to habits. When you see the growth of all, the success of producing safe nutritious food through the adoption of technology will be seen. Will continue to live as a civilized and developed nation.

Hi Village Development Center (VDC) 

I've noticed that the section "Describe your relationship to the place you’ve selected." is not in English. Can you translate the text to English so that the judges can understand it? :)

All the best,
