Crisis–stricken farmers need urgent help to plant in the Central African Republic

Mar 2015

Farmers in the Central African Republic are in urgent need of seeds and tools for the upcoming April planting season. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization warned today that these resources are required in order to prevent further deterioration of the livelihoods of vulnerable populations in the conflict-stricken country. Some 1.5 million people are currently food insecure in the country and this figure is likely to rise if immediate support not be provided.
