NaijaAgroNet: ... Linking agrobiz, sustainable environs, people & technology

The United Nation (UN's) International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has launched a Crisis Response Initiative to ensure that small-scale farmers in high-risk countries can produce food over the next few months to feed their families and communities while reducing the threat to future harvests, reports NaijaAgroNet.

“The disruption to global markets is shaking food systems to the core,” said Gilbert F. Houngbo, President of IFAD. “This is particularly alarming for countries already grappling with the impacts of climate change and COVID-19, where more people are likely to be pushed further into poverty and hunger. IFAD’s new initiative will help protect livelihoods and markets so that the most vulnerable people can continue to feed their families and communities, and thrive for a better future.”

Jonathan commends youth response to agriculture under his administration

President Goodluck Jonathan has described as unprecedented youth response to agriculture under his administration, saying that such response to agricultural initiatives is one of the successes of his government, NaijaAgroNet  reports.

NaijaAgroNet learnt this much at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) swearing-in ceremony for the 2015 Batch 'A' ‎Stream I corps members, deployed to Lagos State, at the NYSC Orientation Camp , in Iyana-Ipaja.

Represented by Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, Jonathan stated that his administration has put in place many beneficial interventions, which have increased the skills, self-confidence and self-sufficiency available to the youth, NaijaAgroNet gathered.

"I'm particularly delighted with the unprecedented youth response to Agriculture," he said.
"Now, across the country, in cultivation, aquaculture, processing, packaging: all along the value chain, our youth are rediscovering their potential, making adequate incomes and producing more food, with modern, exciting techniques, and equipment."

Jonathan, NaijaAgroNet also said that his government has shown committed support for the NYSC scheme which has exposed millions of youths to the cultures and traditions of Nigeria's pluralistic society and hoped that the "next government will continue to support and encourage corps members.”
