New EU-AU project to boost Somalia's agriculture

The European Union (EU) and African Union Inter African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) launched a 4 million Euros project which aims to boost Somalia's agriculture. This support will reach thousands of farmers.
EU and AU-IBAR launched together  a new project in Mogadishu to strengthen animal health service delivery in Somalia. This programme will also promote livestock production for 250,000 Somali pastoralists and enhance export.
The new project, called "Reinforcing Animal Health Services in Somalia" (RAHS ), aims at improving the quality, access and sustainability of animal health services delivery in Somalia.
The livestock sector is the main provider to Somali livelihoods. Over 65 percent of the population is engaged in some way in the industry. But the industry has been in decline after the long conflict and persistent drought. However, livestock exports remain the largest traded commodity in Somalia
"The project will contribute to increased income and reduced food insecurity for more than 250,000 households countrywide," the EU-AU explained in a statement.
The joint project aims at sustaining the private sector-led economic growth in the livestock sector, and "strengthening capacities and public-private partnerships."
