Additionally, I contribute two studies on fiscal and regulatory mechanisms for promoting healthy diets in urban Bangladesh and Legal and policy measures for healthy diet promotion in Bangladesh, both funded by IDRC and IDLO. To reduce transportation costs in Bangladesh’s urban areas, I also organized a discussion with the agriculture department and the Bangladesh Railway. I assisted to organize a meeting in February 2023 with the Ministry of Health and all nutrition partners to advance a healthy diet in Bangladesh.  We are currently developing an urban agriculture policy to lower costs and increase the consumption of fresh, nutrient-dense foods in Bangladesh.
