Ottawa (Agencies): The Canadian government has announced a $35.5 million investment in the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) to address global food insecurity.
The funding will be allocated over the next three years to support a new program called “Nature Positive Food Systems for Climate Change Adaptation in East Africa” (Nature Positive Plus).
This multi-year initiative focuses on helping rural communities in Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe adapt to climate change and improve food security.
Climate change has become a significant driver of hunger globally, making food production more challenging due to factors like unpredictable rainfall, drought, and floods.
The program aims to restore ecological health, enhance landscapes’ ability to absorb climate change stressors, and improve the well-being of communities.
