FAO @fao Seeks $940m To Support 32m Farmers

The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) says it is seeking 940 million dollars to meet urgent needs of more than 32 million food-insecure people living in more than 30 countries.
The organization made this known in its 2019 humanitarian appeal in Rome.

In a document available to newsmen in Abuja recently, the organization named Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Mozambique, Yemen and Syria among the beneficiaries of the planned support programme.
It noted that these nations depended on agriculture, largely, for their survival and livelihood.
The document showed that the organization’s funding requirements in 2019 stood at 3.4 million dollars for 1.3 million people.

FAO @fao said Yemen had the highest requirement of 218.5 million dollars, the world’s largest humanitarian crisis where it planned to reach 8.6 million people with high impact interventions combining cash and agricultural livelihood support.

The organization expressed the hope of reaching the people through a range of interventions aimed at boosting local food production and enhancing nutrition while strengthening the communities’ resilience to crises.

FAO @fao said the global response to its request would assist in addressing the root causes of rising food insecurity and malnutrition, particularly of the most vulnerable people.

The organization identified the planned activities to include the provision of agricultural inputs such as seeds, tools, fertilizer for crop farming and livestock breeding, adding that it would provide animal feed and veterinary care as well as conduct training in farming best practices... SOURCE:

The federal government will place a final ban on the importation of tomato paste before the end of 2019, the minister of agriculture and natural resources, Audu Ogbeh, has said.

Mr Ogbeh said this during a tour of the Dangote Tomato Processing Plant in Kadawa, Kano State, a report by The Cable, highlighted.

According to the report, Mr Ogbeh said the ban will encourage massive tomato production. “The federal government has set aside N250 billion through the Central Bank of Nigeria and Bank Agriculture to disburse as soft loans to tomato farmers as part of the Anchor Borrower scheme. “Federal government will continue to encourage Dangote agro-farms and the farmers to grow massive tomatoes in Nigeria and with this kind of outfit, farmers will earn more with better seedlings from the Dangote greenhouse and get better results,” the minister said, according to the report, explaining that $22 billion is spent on tomato paste importation annually….
