THIRTY-NINE community groups from Tavua, Ba, Lautoka and Nadi have undertaken farming projects as part of government's "Enhancing Livelihood Recovery Project".

The program is being headed by the Ministry of Agriculture with the assistance of the United Nations Development Programme.

UNDP democratic governance and resilience building team leader Sainimili Nabou said the community groups consisted of women, youths and co-operative groups from the four districts undertaking each farming project.

"Project management arrangements are led by the Department of Agriculture in collaboration with the Ministry of Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management and the Ministry of Strategic Planning, National Development and Statistics," she said.

Project co-ordinators of the farming projects have been part of a three-day workshop that highlights the best practices and lessons learnt in the area of disaster resiliency, risk reduction and management with the focus on food security.

Permanent secretary for Agriculture Ropate Ligairi said the first component of the project had been implemented while UNDP would implement the second component of the project, which was to enhance the capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture to address risk mitigation and provide support to vulnerable communities.
