      As landlessness and near landlessness together with unemployment and underemployment are the prime determinants of food insecurity in rural areas, land and tenancy reforms as well as Grameen-type credit schemes and institutional support for diversification are of additional importance. Bangladesh has avoided a recurrence of famine since , but this does not imply that there has been improvement in the underlying trend of persistent hunger. This chapter analyses the changes that occurred as well as the tasks ahead, arguing that vulnerability still remains. The prevailing food policies accentuate rather than relieve the problem of endemic hunger, and the relatively.

Landlessness to agricultural land is considered to he the most important contributor to rural poverty.

A high concentration of landownership is a major constraint to agricultural growth and alleviation of poverty.

The rural population of Bangladesh is organized into large (>3 ha), medium (1–3 ha), small (–1 ha), and functionally landless (growing landlessness (BBS,).Cited by: In rural areas, land is the most important asset.

igh incidence of inequality in landholding The h patterns is a major characteristic of Indian agriculture.
