Postponement of Nutrition Olympiad 2020

As you all know well, the Nutrition Olympiad 2020 is due to be organized on 18 April 2020 by the Meeting the Undernutrition Challenge (MUCH) Project of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), supported by the USAID and the EU, BIID Foundation, and the Food Planning and Monitoring Unit (FPMU) of the Ministry of Food. However, considering the rapidly evolving situation due to the COVID-19 globally, a risk assessment to evaluate the criticality of holding the event was undertaken in view of keeping the risks as minimum as possible in the prevailing situation.

Following the assessment, we regret to announce that the Nutrition Olympiad 2020 will be postponed until further notice. We hope that all the registered participants and other concerned stakeholders can embrace this decision and understand our risk mitigation effort, while youth engagement in the improvement of nutrition in Bangladesh should continue to grow despite the COVID-19 incident.
We will come back to you with a new date once the situation goes back to normal.
