Furthering on the present civilian administration’s aggressive drive towards achieving and sustaining food security and defeating hunger, high level opinionists and decision makers in the Ministries of Agriculture, Budget and Planning from the six southwest states of Nigeria and other dignitaries involved in inclusive agriculture converged on Amber Residence, Ikeja, Lagos to hobnob and deliberate on ways of achieving success in the life-sustaining feat.
Under a project named “Strengthening Civic Advocacy And Local Engagement”, the programme sponsored by the USAID through PALLADIUM has as its collaborators the DAWN COMMISSION and the LIFE AND PEACE DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATION.
The aims of the cluster include:
✓Collaborating with the southwest states to establish an inclusive agricultural policy that includes persons living with disabilities and women in discussions on food production.
✓Creating agrowomen budget line to support women in agriculture to upscale their production while taking steps towards processing and preservation.
