It is the result of an agreement signed by the Minister of Agriculture, Gabriel Mbaïrobe.
Farmers in Cameroon are suffering from a drastic drop in the productivity of their lands. This is due to climate change, which has had an impact on the quality of crops. Against this background, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will provide technical, financial and material support to the Local development initiatives support service (LDISS) in the coming weeks.
This is stipulated in the agreement signed on December 29 between Agriculture Minister Gabriel Mbaïrobe and LDISS, Secretary General, Nana Shimi. Although the agreement’s general thrust is to promote agroecology, more detaily, it aims to provide farmers with sufficient information on good agricultural practices, the harmful effects of current practices and the ecological transition window.
Minister Mbaïrobe said: “The government is committed to agro-ecology, to the protection of the environment and to the diversification of producers’ incomes. It was a good idea for us to join forces with LDISS, which has already put its heart and soul into this revolution. It is a revolution so that we can pool our energies and give an answer to the world of the countryside.”
