Report on state of food in the Rupununi to inform action
In an effort to help eliminate hunger, food insecurity, and malnutrition in Guyana, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) will collaborate with Conservation International Guyana (CIG) over the plight of food insecure persons in the Rupununi district.
During the FAO’s annual accountability seminar held yesterday, CEO of CIG, David Singh said that the collaboration between the two organisations will aim to produce a report of the state of food and agriculture in the Rupununi. He added that this production will be complimented by an economic baseline assessment for the Rupununi. “It will focus a lot on local communities, especially on tourism and agriculture. With this kind of information, we know that we will contribute substantially within Guyana, within the Rupununi and hopefully beyond.” he said.
