WFD in Grenada

Grenada - 16/10/2016

The Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership recently partnered with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to celebrate World Food Day (WFD) which carried a theme this year of ‘Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too.’ In Grenada, activities were held along the Carenage waterfront with over one hundred persons attending with the Minister of Agriculture, the P.S. of Agriculture and the Chair of the WFD Committee. Grenada’s focus surrounded the zero hunger initiative which relates to increasing crop production and promoting climate resilient crops. A wide range of displays from the agricultural sector were on show together with cultural performances by drummers, dancers, a steel orchestra and band. Activities provided the project with the opportunity to raise awareness among those in attendance and for those viewing the news coverage surrounding the event.
