Public policy, markets and household coping strategies in Bangladesh: avoiding a food security crisis following the 1998 floods


Public policy, markets and household coping strategies in Bangladesh: avoiding a food security crisis following the 1998 floods



World Development Oxford 31(7): 1221-1238



DOI: 10.1016/s0305-750x(03)00071-8

At their peak, the 1998 floods covered two-thirds of Bangladesh, causing severe damage to the major rice crop and threatening the food security of tens of millions of households. In this paper, we first highlight the contribution of government policy interventions, including trade liberalization in the early 1990s, to stabilization of rice markets during and after the flood.
