The Sectors (2014 - 2017)

Despite growth in other sectors of the economy – most notably the ready-made garment (RMG) industry, agriculture remains central to life in Bangladesh. It is estimated that this sector employs 47% of the country’s total labour force, yet only provides 16% of GDP. Because of its central importance - and in order to improve productivity in the sector, agriculture has remained Katalyst’s focus throughout its years of operation. The project operates in three main agricultural sectors, as outlined below.
