Brazil supports Angola in agricultural training in a region with extreme drought

A Brazilian delegation spent five days in Angola with the aim of supporting the African country in the training of family farming and food reserves in regions suffering from severe drought, Brazilian officials told Lusa this Monday.


From the 25th to the 29th of April, a delegation composed, among others, by the National Supply Company of Brazil (Conab), Brazilian Cooperation Agency (ABC), Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Mapa) and Ministry of Regional Development (MDR ), diagnosed the problems of infrastructure for the production, processing, transport and storage of products in the Province of Cunene, a region located in southern Angola that is suffering from severe drought.

Present in the delegation, the manager of Registration and Accreditation of Warehouses at Conab, Saulo Tomiyoshi Medeiros, explained to Lusa that Brazil can contribute to the formation of food reserves, namely in products such as corn, rice and beans.

"They have supply problems" and need to import these products, explained the official.

Through the Brazilian experience, these officials want to cooperate with this Angolan region so that it is also possible to implement family farming, starting with the basic food basket, so that the populations become self-sufficient, explained to Lusa, the Operational Programming manager of Conab's Family Agriculture and Sociobiodiversity, Kelma Cruz.

Kelma Cruz also revealed that in July a memorandum of cooperation should be signed between the two Portuguese-speaking countries so that projects and activities to be followed up are detained, in a concrete way.
