Agriculture corresponds to ISIC divisions 1-5 and includes forestry, hunting, and fishing, as well as cultivation of crops and livestock production.
Agriculture in Bangladesh is characterized by small, rice-dominated farms, which have greatly contributed to increasing food self-sufficiency over the last 30 years.
Agriculture is also a major employer (44 % of the total workforce) and contributes ~12 % of Bangladesh's GDP ( IUCN 2012 ). For these reasons, the government has given topmost priority to the agriculture sector.
Agriculture is the largest employment sector in Bangladesh The performance of this sector has an overwhelming impact on major macroeconomic objectives like employment generation, poverty alleviation, human resources development, food security, etc.
Agriculture remains the largest employment sector in Bangladesh and international agriculture agreements are crucial to the country's food security.
