EU invests 20 million euros into COMRAP

The European Union (EU) has invested about 20 million euros into the Common Market for Eastern and Southern African Regional Agro Inputs Programme (COMRAP) meant to help enhance food production and marketing in the region. And Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (Comesa) has come up with a regional agricultural inputs programme meant to enhance food security, productivity and competitiveness through enhancing smallholder farmers’ access to farming inputs. Meanwhile, agriculture deputy minister Allan Mbewe said there was need to deal with the impact of rising food prices in the region as it affects over 60 per cent of its population. During the consultative meeting of the Comesa Region Agro-Inputs Programme, Comesa assistant secretary general-programmes Stephen Karangizi said COMRAP, which was being implemented by the Comesa Specialised Agency on markets and food security, arose from a need to cushion vulnerable households from the impact of sharp rises in food prices that were experienced between 2007 and 2008.
