Project launched to foster climate-smart practices in Balochistan
The Balochistan government has joined hands with the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations to mobilize policy support for driving sectoral development and fostering climate-smart practices in agriculture and fisheries in the province.
FAO Representative in Pakistan Florence Rolle and Gwadar-Lasbela Livelihood Support Project (GLLSP-II) Director Rehmat Dashti signed a Unilateral Trust Fund (UTF) agreement in this regard here on Wednesday.
The collaboration will be implemented through GLLSP-II, a project financed by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
The six-year project aims to promote climate-resilient agriculture and livestock farming systems, empower smallholders with knowledge and skills and enable them to build better resilience.
