Haiti - Agriculture : Minister wants WFP to increase purchases of local products
Friday in Rome, on the sidelines of the General Assembly of the United Nations Food Fund (FAO) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26333-haiti-agriculture-in-rome-the-minister-discusses-a-50-million-agreement-with-ifad.html , Jobert C. Angrand, the Minister of Agriculture of Natural Resources and Rural Development held a working session with Amir Mahmoud Abdulla, Vice President of the World Food Program (WFP).

Several important topics were discussed during this meeting, but issues related to the agricultural sector and food security were given priority. Increasing purchases of local products with WFP donations, to ensure a market for Haiti's agricultural products, was the culmination of the discussions. In addition, given the vulnerability of Haiti, Minister Angrand asked WFP to establish a strategic food stock to deal with major natural hazards.

In addition, Minister Angrand took the opportunity to explore with WFP support possibilities to clean up and correct some gullies, which constitute a permanent danger for the population.
