Members of ANAPROFIIKO at the recent soybeans and black beans harvest
Dili, Timor-Leste – ANAPROFIKO has strengthened its network with various stakeholders following a soybeans and black beans harvest where forty-five participants attended the activity.
“The objective of the activity is to strengthen our network and also promote seed products at the national level through seed harvest activities,” said General Secretary, Joanico Ximenes
“Food availability is one of the four major components of food security and we are trying to improve it through commercial seed production.”
“This component is much more sophisticated at the national, regional and local level, and it requires government to fix our current seed system laws.”
The harvest activity was funded by the Farmers’ Organizations for Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (FO4ACP) Programme, a joint partnership between the European Union, Africa Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) and Pacific Island Farmers Organisation Network (PIFON).
