EX­PERTS CALL FOR IN­CREASED FUND­ING

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - SEEDS OF GOLD -

EX­PERTS HAVE called for the ac­cel­er­a­tion of agri­cul­tural in­vest­ment to boost pro­duc­tion.

Speak­ing at the third Agri­cul­tural Re­search Sym­po­sium in Nairobi this week, they noted that re­search will guar­an­tee nu­tri­tion, food se­cu­rity, job cre­ation and poverty re­duc­tion in a sus­tain­able man­ner.

Ali­son Chartres, the Aus­tralian High Com­mis­sioner to Kenya, said that the ini­tia­tive “pro­vides space that en­cour­ages col­lab­o­ra­tive con­tri­bu­tion to­wards achiev­ing food se­cu­rity in Africa.”
