An agreement has been signed between Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on providing technical assistance for the government on agriculture and food security projects.
The project is underway under the grant assistance of Global Agriculture Food Security Program -- a new multidonor trust fund managed by the World Bank. World Bank is also supervising the project. The project, which started last year, is in implementation in 19 districts of mid and far western development regions for five years. The main objective of the project is to increase agriculture and livestock production in order to bring improvements in food security of the local people.
