Coastal Bangladesh is severely affected by salinity which increases during the dry season and negatively affects crop cultivation, and because of this, the majority of the farmers don't cultivate crops at this time of the year. This case study shows the impact of saline farming on local communities assessed according to the accomplishment of the Sustainable Development Goals. The growth performance of several salt-tolerant crops, with improved farming methods under saline conditions, was validated by farmers, and at a new research and training center in Bangladesh, the crops and farming techniques were introduced to a group of 5,000 farmers. A smaller subset of 260 farmers (both group farmers as well as lead farmers) was randomly chosen to closely monitor the effect that these improved crops and farming techniques had on their livelihoods. The results showed improved yields and market value of the crops, an average increase in household income of 34% and an enhanced food security (understood as sufficient supply) increase from 15% to 65%.
