A United Nations project in Egypt aims to enhance best agricultural practices among local farmers
The Food and Agricultural Organization project educates farmers on the best harvesting practices as well as promotes modern techniques.
The programme mainly targets women and youth in five governorates.
“The most important thing is the marketing. They have to guarantee to me as a farmer that my right is preserved. I do not want the big trader and exporter to take what is my right”
(Ali Zaki Abdelmotaleb, farmer)
In the past five years since its launch, it has reached 2,708 women and youth in cities where malnutrition accounts for 35% of the disease burden in children under five.
