$8 million agreement to prevent a food crisis in the Central African Republic

The World Bank, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the government of the Central African Republic  signed $8 million agreement to prevent a full-scale food crisis in Central African Republic. This emergency project is part of a $20 million programme to support food aid and agriculture production in this country.
Midou Ibrahima, World Bank Resident Representative in the Central Africa Republic, explained that this agreement  is “part of the World Bank’s total commitment of $100 million to help restore essential state services, as well as provide food, health care and support to restore the agriculture sector in the Central African Republic.”
The first objective will be to provide seeds and tools to 9000 families before the planting seasons starting by mid-April to allow them to harvest about 6 000 tonnes of maize, ground nuts and rice by September 2014.
