Our team at Dikoda believes that good nutrition is a fundamental human right and a critical element for achieving sustainable development.

In Bangladesh, we focus on maternal nutrition, nutrition in the workplace, and urban nutrition because we recognize that these areas are crucial for improving the health and well-being of communities.

WHAT WE DO:

At Dikoda, we research and test nutritionspecific and sensitive interventions using new design, new delivery platforms, and new entry points. We provide technical services through in-house experts and researchers to develop evaluations, impact studies, monitoring support, final assessments, cost-benefit analysis, training packages, and knowledge management solutions.

In Bangladesh, we specialize in needs assessment, customized and complex research design and implementation of standardized surveys with a strong focus on the agri-food system.

WE ARE A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

In our work, we see many opportunities that our partners and clients cannot easily fund. Our team invests in pro-bono research to explore small but promising excellent ideas and/or gaps in knowledge related to our focus areas

WE PROVIDE INCREASED OPPORTUNITIES TO WOMEN AND JUNIOR RESEARCHERS IN LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRIES (LMICS):

99% of our current workforce is now formed by women. We give preferred opportunities to women junior researchers in LMICs.

OUR CURRENT PROJECTS IN BANGLADESH:

Currently, most of our work is focused on Asia and the Pacific. However, we have expanded our reach to Bangladesh due to its significant potential to improve nutrition outcomes for its population.
