Agriculture: EU launches new project in Liberia

Increasing agricultural production by smallholder farmers, boosting agricultural value chains to revitalize the agricultural economic sector, providing technical support and investment to Liberia’s emerging agro-enterprises, and increasing the utilization of nutritious food by vulnerable households; these are just some of the key objectives of a major new European Union funded project which focuses on stimulating the Agriculture Sector across seven counties of Liberia over the next five years. Yesterday, Hon. Mogana S. Flomo, Jr. PhD, Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Liberia and Ambassador Hélène Cavé, European Union Ambassador to Liberia jointly officiated at the launch of the EU-Liberia Agriculture Programme (EULAP) – Prosperous Agriculture Roadmap to Nutrition, Entrepreneurship and Reinforcing Sustainability Project. The project will commonly be known as the PARTNERS Project. This project reflects the European Union’s on-going dedication and commitment towards sustainable development in Liberia. This project is funded by the Rural Development component of the EU – Liberia Agriculture Programme. For this project, the EU is providing funding of €12 million (approx. USD 14 million) with a further €1.3 million contributed by the implementing partners. This project aims to support farmers and businesses to realize the enormous potential of the Liberian agricultural sector with a view to contributing to the country’s social and economic development.
