 Yemen Post Staff

Only weeks away from Yemen second Donors' Conference in London -March 7th - Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation Farid Mujawar met in Sana'a, the capital with Robert Wilson, USAID Director - U.S Agency for International development - to discuss development projects in the impoverished nation.Minister Mujawar who told the press he was focusing his energy on getting the Cabinet to grasp the importance agriculture should hold within the nation's economic recovery plan, has been reviewing with Wilson ways in which Yemen could improve food security, building a strong and varied farming system - plants and animals - in keeping with the country water restriction."We are trying to convince the government to give priority in support to the agricultural sector to promote its role in providing food security and to take advantage of this sector as a means of combating poverty in rural and urban areas", Mujawar said.Yemen agriculture sector has suffered for the past decades of mis-management and under funding, leading to an economic contraction and widespread food insecurity.With over 40% of Yemen having been classified by the World Food Program - WFP - as food insecure, Yemen, say experts needs to rev up its animal and land farming as a matter of urgency.And while some efforts have been made locally by governors, a national policy needs to be implemented. For example, in the eastern province of Hadhramawt, residents are being encouraged to grow their own crops to attain some level of self-sufficiency.
