Paying a courtesy call on old friend, Mr Jusu at the EBAFOSA offices (eco based adpaptation food security assembly) last week, Mo from Hope and Alfred and Vidal from Society 4 Climate Chnage Communications were interested to learn of forward plans for innovative clean energy powered agricultural industrial zones and to hear that one of the Governments top new direction priorities is to intensify rice production levering in private sector investment to reduce the country’s reliance on imported rice by 2030.
Mr Jusu explained that EBAFOSA are making good progress developing a database of farming organizations and organizations working on agricultural issues and the EBAFOSA team are currently delivering pilot nutrition workshops in the Southern province educating participants on the value of the food they produce and the importance of a balanced diet. S4CCC and EBAFOSA agreed to meet again to develop a workshop component on diversifying into drought-resistant crops to help comunities adapt to climate change and Mo promised that Hope's Director, M'Mayila Yansaneh, would visit on her upcoming trip to further explore collaborative projects
