Morocco Extends Technical Assistance to FAO Programme in Djibouti
Morocco will send 22 farming experts and technicians to Djibouti to work with local experts as part of an agreement between the two countries, the Islamic Development Bank and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The agreement is part of the FAO's South-South Co-operation Programme, a global initiative that aims to strengthen co-operation among developing countries at different stages of development to improve agricultural productivity.
The Moroccan experts will work in Djibouti for three years, contributing their knowledge in areas such as water management, crop intensification and farming systems diversification, including animal husbandry and fisheries. The Islamic Development Bank, the governments of Saudi Arabia and Djibouti, and FAO will finance the $1.2m project. (ANTARA, MAP)
