Vietnam to help Chad improve food security

Vietnamese experts are set to help Chad implement a series of activities aimed at improving the African country's food security under a tripartite South-South Cooperation agreement signed in March 2010.

The activities, which involve irrigation for rice growing and horticulture, increased cereals production, artisanal fishing, bee-keeping and food processing, are part of Chad's five-year, $200mn National Programme for Food Security, which FAO helped design.
Fifteen Vietnamese experts and technicians will help Chad implement the activities over two years. The $2mn in costs will be covered by Chad through a trust fund established with FAO, which will also be providing technical assistance.
