Science Communication and Biosafety Policy Training

Farming Future Bangladesh is the only organization in Bangladesh that is serving to coordinate and mobilize the policy environment and improving the broader system for agricultural biotechnology in Bangladesh.

FFB has collaborated and closely working with the South Asian Biosafety Program (SABP) for policy-level implementation. Besides, leading public and private universities has been affiliated with us to develop university-based Alliance for Science group/Science Club/Youth Groups. FFB has also worked with the Bangladesh Association of Biotechnology Graduates (BABG), a national-level association consisting of more than 1500 graduate biotechnologists from reputed public and private universities of the country.

Scientist and Academia Engagement Events

FFB is focused on networking, coalition building, social mobilization, and capacity building of public and private university scientists, academics, and students. Academics and media-friendly university scientists who can serve as reputable experts on the subject matter are engaged and invited to communication, outreach, and capacity-building programs.

We have already partnered with the reputable public and private universities of Bangladesh and are continuing the expansion of engagement with other universities.

In addition to that, Farming Future Bangladesh supports developing a long-term working relationship with the academia and engage them with media through op-eds, interviews, and other meetings and project outreach programs. We are expecting to engage a vast number of university-level academia and scientists through our targeted activities.
