WFD in St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines - 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.’. Demonstrations such as a bio-digester for pig waste were on show in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and one farmer received an award for practising climate smart agriculture. Other activities included a national symposium, exhibition, consultations and radio and television interviews. Chairman of the local WFD committee, Mr. Cornelius Richards addressed those gathered for the official WFD ceremony, approximately one hundred and fifty persons, held in St. Vincent’s City Centre. Over 1,000 persons visited the exhibition which was open between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
