Mike Robson, FAO Representative in Bangladesh expresses his views on the newly undertaken demonstrative green rooftop Initiative at FAO Representation in Bangladesh.

Background: FAO’s current works actively to protect, promote and improve established food-based systems as the sustainable solution to ensure food and nutrition security. More specifically, assistance in the field is being provided in homestead food production and nutrition education with the objective of enhancing food security and nutrition. For urban agriculture concept, rooftops would be ideal to provide space for food production when no ground-level landscape is available. Rooftop farms and gardens are therefore particularly valuable in densely occupied cities of Bangladesh, where space is at a premium, and their construction supports the idea of building upward, rather than outward.

Purpose: The key purpose would be the demonstration and promote urban agriculture- rooftop agriculture- green roof.
