IFAD supports EAC’s efforts to become food self-sufficient

The president of the Rome-based International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD), Mr. Kanayo Nwanze, has assured full support to the East African Community (EAC) in their efforts to fight hunger and become food self-sufficient.  IFAD’s President stated that EAC would be their top priority in 2013, adding that his senior officials would be dispatched to discuss areas of co-operation in revamping food production in the region.
A five-year Action Plan was adopted by the 9th Extra-Ordinary Summit of EAC Heads of State, the highest decision making body, earlier this year. The aim of the Action Plan is to significantly increase the production of strategic food security commodities through access to inputs and promotion of cross border production in the region. The EAC is also establishing an early warning system to monitor food shortages
