This report is a compilation of a workshop sessions held with stakeholders engaged in a foresight and scenario develop process to develop a Dhaka Food Agenda 2041. The report describes the rationale and the different steps undertaken in the process as well as its outputs. Stakeholders have interacted and explored the Dhaka Metropolitan food system and discussed the linkages between issues in the domain of food and nutrition security, food safety, food loss and waste, fresh markets and value chains. In terms of output they have deliberated that one of the major uncertainties is the shift in diets of citizens related to the uncertainty of having thriving small and sustainable businesses versus big- companies (supermarketisation). The participants developed different scenarios and their narratives that are varying from least to most desirable situation. The workshops have led to evidence and dialogue on the needs and opportunities to aim for a sustainable and inclusive food system in Dhaka in 2041. In conclusion, the report presents the steps that will follow the scoping, mapping, analysis of drivers and trends and the scenario development feeding into the further development of the Dhaka Food Agenda 2041.
