Update: January, 20/2012 - 10:16

HA NOI — The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the European Commission Monday announced a new 5.3 million-euro (US$7.95 million) project that helps promote climate-smart farming in Viet Nam, Malawi and Zambia.

The project hopes to make changes in farming systems, including improving their contribution to the fight against hunger and poverty, rendering them more resilient to climate change and reducing emissions, according to Rome-based FAO.

"The project will look closely at three countries and identify challenges and opportunities for climate-smart agriculture and produce strategic plans tailored to each country's own reality," said FAO Assistant Director-General for the Economic and Social Development Department, Hafez Ghanem.— VNS
