Cuba hosts workshop on food security with EU

To help increase the production of quality food to respond to domestic demand, the initial Workshop of the SAS-Cuba Country Programme, in collaboration with the European Union (EU), is taking place at a Havana hotel on Tuesday.
The project, entitled ‘Strategic Support for Sustainable Food Security in Cuba’ (SAS-Cuba), is being undertaken by the Cuban Ministry of Agriculture (MINAG) and the EU Delegation, in coordination with the Ministry of Food Industry, the Ministry of Domestic Trade and the Ministry of Higher Education.

It also coordinates with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment, the Ministry of Public Health, the Ministry of Economy and Planning and the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment.

The plan, which is accompanied by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), will begin to be implemented after the ratification of the Financing Agreement signed in September between the Cuban government and the EU.

The project seeks to sustainably increase the production of quality food to meet local demand, specifically through the application of innovative, environmental and climate-resilient approaches, and its implementation period is 2019-2025.

The workshop includes the exhibition of the Municipal Food Self-Sufficiency Program (PAM) and its relevance in the current Cuban agricultural context. (Taken from Prensa Latina)
