Overview of Dr. Mohammad Mizanul Haque Kazal

I started my career as a Research Officer under a post-doctoral fellow working for Winrock International Institute for Agricultural Development, USA. It was a challenging job that it required frequent visits to rural areas for collecting and compiling primary data. But at the same time, it was highly productive and rewarding to me, as it gave me a hands-on experience of conducting empirical research emanating from the field level. Thereafter, I joined Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) as a Scientific Officer (Agricultural Economics) at the Regional Agricultural Research Station (RARS) in the On-Farm Research Division (OFRD) located in Hathazari, Chittagong. One of the principal functions there was to identify socio-agro-economic problems of farmers through research. A little over a couple of years later I was transferred to Tuber Crops Research Centre (TCRC), Joydebpur, Gazipur where I initiated several research projects. At that point I decided to take up teaching.

I joined Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), Sylhet, Bangladesh in the Department of Economics in 1995. Meanwhile I completed my Ph.D. from the Post Graduate School, Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), New Delhi under a program financed by the Government of India. I completed my Ph.D. thesis in the area of agricultural development and policy. My study attempted to identify the level of inter-state disparities in agricultural development in India, and the factors responsible for these. The study recommended policies for a balanced development in different states of India.

I served at American International University Bangladesh (AIUB), Dhaka as a Professor and Head of the Department of Economics under the faculty of Arts and Social Sciences from June 01, 2008 to August 30, 2010 on lien. Later, I joined on August 31, 2010 in the department of Development & Poverty Studies and worked as Chairman in the department in 3 terms (2years each term) at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University (SAU), Dhaka.  I served as a Dean in the Faculty of Agribusiness Management at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University (SAU), Dhaka.

Over the years at SUST, AIUB and SAU, I have taught a wide range of courses in economics, e.g. micro and macroeconomics, agricultural economics, development economics, economy of Bangladesh, poverty studies, development studies, research methodology, project analysis, natural resources and environmental economics, econometrics, and agribusiness enterprise development. Also, I have supervised several student research projects funded by an international organization, WorldFish Center. In addition, I have completed two research projects financed by the IUCN and IFC. Furthermore, I have had the opportunity to participate in a few high profile national and international seminars akin to development policies. As a Principal Investigator (PI), I completed two research projects funded by USAID and EU and sponsored by FAO; these were related with food security strategies and „financial and economic profitability of agricultural crops. I accomplished another project related to Small and medium Enterprise (SME) Development in Crops, Livestock and Fisheries which was sponsored by Programme Support Unit, Planning Commission (PSU-PC), Agricultural Sector Programme Support-II (ASPS-II), Planning Commission, Dhaka, and financed by DANIDA. I conducted a research project on entrepreneurship and value chain development in hill agriculture as PI, funded by the Krishi Gobeshona Foundation (KGF). In addition, I served as a Consultant/ Team Leader with different International, Government and Non-Government Organizations. I look forward to opportunities to use my accumulated expertise in areas of planning, evaluation, and impact assessment of development projects, etc.
